Townsend Middle is an excellent school with good teachers...The teacher here actually care about the students and when allowed to, they will go the extra mile for their students. The only problem is when parents won't work with the teachers. Students who want to learn get an excellent education here....there is P.R.I.D.E at Townsend Middle School...

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.
