Tyro Midlde School is excellent. Pure and simple! Truly a wonderful place for our two middle schoolers to grow. Excellent academics, music, art, sports, great teachers and sweet kids! We feel truly blessed to have out children in the Davidson County School district and particularly at Tyro Middle School.

Since moving from FL, my children have seem to perform much better here in Tyro. I don't know a whole lot about the school but overall academic wise my children seem to be doing outstanding so far!

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.
