I HAD ALWAYS HEARD NEGATIVE THINGS REGARDING THIS SCHOOL, SO I WAS CONCERNED AS I HAVE A CHILD AND A NIECE THAT ATTENDS THIS SCHOOL...HOWEVER MY CHILD AND NIECE HAS BOTH ENJOYED GOING TO NORTHEAST MIDDLE 2 YEARS IN A ROW AND ALTHOUGH I HAVE HEARD SOME BAD THINGS THAT BROKE OUT IN SCHOOL LIKE FIGHTS AND SUCH, I DO BELIEVE THE SCHOOL HAS PROBABLY IMPROVED OVER THE LAST COUPLE YEARS. JUST KEEP IT UP NORTHEAST KEEP OUR KIDS MOTIVATED AND POSITIVE AND TEACH W/ A GOOD ATTITUDE AND THIS SCHOOL COULD RECEIVE A IMPROVED RATING. A 3 OUT OF A 10 IS LOW AND WOULD LIKE TO SEE THAT NUMBER A BIT HIGHER. I DO BELIEVE THE NEW PRINICIPLE HAS HAD A PRETTY GOOD IMPACT ON THE SCHOOL THOUGH, SHE SEEMS CARING,THANK YOU

So bad, not even worthy of the 1 star. This school is a joke. My child learned absolutely nothing except that people can actually get a paycheck for showing up and doing nothing more. Principal and assistant principals are just as clueless as the children they turn out. No respect from the kids as they walk through the hallways and even into the office, cussing and speaking loudly. Our child spent one year here and it was horrible. We'll take out loans and a second mortgage for private school if ever have to faced with the choice of sending our youngest here!

This is not a good school. Teachers dont notice bullying. I complained, nothing was resolved. A teacher has been bullying the students, yelling, cussing, calling them names. My child hates it there. The students are so unruly and disruptive, he is not able to focus and learn. He doesnt feel safe and always feels threatened. My only option is to sell my house and move to a better school. Its so frustrating and sad and disappointing.

The school has several issue.1 is if my child is out of school they do not call you to let you know. The also have a site to see the attendance but are not forth coming with address. 2 the teacher noticing bulling issue lack extremely and punish the wrong child after asking what went on by other students who are going to side with their friends or the bully.3 to find someone at the front desk who knows anything is rare. My child was bullied on the school bus. I call the school and they send me to transportation to complain. They send me back to the school. I also ask about attendance issues who to contact for various things and they do not know and just push you off.4 telling you not to send cash but checks and not to send checks but send cash, make up your mind. I have no other option but to sell my new house and move to another location to resolve the issue. I leave for work at 7am and the bus picks up at 8am so I can not drop him off early at the school. so I am stuck and my kid pays for it.

I am just not sure what to rate this school or if it should even have a rating. That is sad to say. I feel that some of the teachers hear are just there for a paycheck. Overall I feel that the school itself is not doing much to help these students reach their full potential they are more focused on pushing the smod issue rather than focus on the quality of teaching.

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.
