I really liked this school. I went here a few years ago and I really liked it. I made a lot of friends that I still talk to and I kind of miss East Union. Not that everyday was perfect though. I had my hard times at this school because of bullies and drama. But when I made it to Forest Hills, everything seemed to change. I really think this school prepares you for the future. I only went to this school for half a year, coming from Anson Middle[which is the worst school ever] and East Union welcomed me with opened arms. I really want to go visit my old teachers one day. They were great! I really miss one teacher the most. She was like my second mother at school. The other teachers were amazing too, but not as good as she was. She was the best English teacher that I have ever had. The teachers and staff were great and I really advice anyone to visit this school. It's an amazing experience

There is a Night & Day difference in East Union from last year 2006-2007 and this year 2007-2008. East Union has been blessed with a New Principle, Kevin Plue, and He has been amazing! He has made alot of changes that should have been made years ago. He is there as much for the Students, as he is for the Staff. WTG East Union! I think your on the right Track now!

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.
