My daughter is in Kindergarten and her teacher was the best. She helped her students to excel above and beyond what was expected.

My child is a first grade student. We are pleased with her education so far. However, this school is overcrowded. Its actually over capacitated or like 2 schools in one. With over 1100 students I dont see how they can allow this many in one building. Its a nightmare as far as traffic especially in the afternoons. This area is in desperate need of another school, how the tyro community can get a new school before this area which goes from almost 1/2 of becks church rd,. All way to high rock lake and further is pure stupidity. Its no wonder 1/2 the school is always absent theres no way to prevent germs and infections with this many children in one place! the school board/ administrators should have rezoned this area and split up the school or aleast moved some portion of them. Too crowded

My daughter is in the 3rd grade at Davis-Townsend. We have been extremely happy with the teachers and curriculum thus far. While focusing on education, our experience has been that the instructors also include social development and creativity, as well. Great School!

I have two daughters that attend DT and we have nothing but praise for all the teachers that we have worked with and the principals have been the greatest. We also have a lot of parent/grandparents that help out in the class rooms with the kids that need extra help. They also have afternoon tutoring for kids that need the extra help. Just the greatest school I have ever ran across.

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.
