Our eldest child attended KIS, we were very pleased with her teachers, especially her 5th grade teacher MS. Woerner, she is a great teacher, really top notch. The AIG program here is absolutely amazing, Mr. Bugaiski is phenominal. As parents we really appreciate this school, our daughter flourished here, thank you KIS.

My son has been there over the last two years. I have found the administrative staff, Mrs. Foster especially, to be wonderful. Now that there is a new principal in place, Mr. Parker, I think things will improve at the school. He is a caring individual that I believe truly cares about the students and their academic experience. Three of the four teachers my son has had were very good, especially this last year, but there are some that don't care and live to torment the kids. And then there is Mrs. Newsome. It's time for her to retire! She is nasty and condescending when she talks to you and she does not treat the children in a fair manner at all. I've complained to Mr. Parker about her as have many other parents. Once Mr. Parker can get her removed and straighten out some of the teachers, it will be a better school.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 North Carolina used End-of-Grade (EOG) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The EOG is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of North Carolina. Students must pass the grade 8 EOG test in order to graduate from high school. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the tests.
