Posted March 15, 2011

i am a 6th grade student and Piedmont is truly a great school. its clean, the teachers are simply wonderful, and the curriculum provides a challenge for the students, but not too much of one. the principal really gets involved with the students, unlike other schools. there's plenty to do at this school, including clubs, talent shows, there's a lot of field trips and you have "electives" that you can pick for yourself, not by teachers. bullying isn't much of a problem here, and neither is crimes or excessively bad things such as drugs or alcohol use. i highly recommend this place to anyone who is looking for an above average 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.
