I am a student at Central Davidson Middle School. The principal does little more than yell at the kids and take away priveledges to keep them in line, a method that is none too effective. The teachers are usually supportive ot the kids, a great thing.
—Submitted by a student


Posted February 27, 2007

Central Middle is a very good school with one exception.Mr. Reynolds, the assistant principle. Central is full of bullies, as I am sure every school has its share. Mr. Reynolds seems afraid to punish these kids.-especially on the school buses. If the assistant principal won't see that the school rules are followed, what are these innocent children supposed to do? I hope in the very near future Mr Reynolds will be replaced with someone that is not afraid to put his foot down.

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.
