Being a teacher at Eastfield is a wonderful experience. This school is like a family. We are a small elementary and try to get to know the students and their families. The administration is very supportive and active within the school. A great place to be!

Posted November 9, 2005

Eastfield is a wonderful school. I love the year round schedule and my children love the teachers. I'm amazed with all the workshops and classes the teachers go to in order to help all the students acheive their goal. I am confident that they will be prepared academically. The extracurricular activities offered are wonderful. They are challenged with each sport they play and are encouraged through the school to participate. The school welcomes parent envolvement. I've never been turned away and the teachers are very apreciative of any help. Eastfield is a wonderful school from the principal to the teachers to all the parents who give their time to the children.

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.
