- Excellent teachers - good and caring staff - Nice activities for kids - Public school with higher than private standards - Overcrowding??? Not so much - we do not think of it being an issue

I noticed that some of the previous e-mails discussed overcrowding issues. However, a new school was built down the road, so there are now less than 750 students. Hallways are quiet and there's now plenty of space. I have been pleased with my kids' teachers. The school is challenging, yet caring. Great combination!

Teacher quality is not consistent in this school. While it has many excellent teachers, it also has staff that would be better suited to non childcare careers. It is however a very safe school and focuses on safety and good citizenship.

I found some of the teachers to be less than mediocre, while others to be very good. This school has very few extracurricular activities and no programs for gifted children.

This school is excellant even though thereis a severe over crowding issue. I do not fear for the safety of my children while they are there because of the high numbers. The staff is outstanding.

I have been very impressed by this school. My husband and I are professionals and have felt like we have found a school with private school level involvement of parents yet still is a public school. We have 3 children at this school and have been very impressed and pleased with the school staff who treat our children with individual attention, compassion and strengthen our children's love of academics.

This school is completely over crowded, we have over 1125 students. The children are packed in like sardines and safety has been an issue at this 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.
