MY CHILD WENT TO A CHARTER SCHOOL FOR A COUPLE OF YEARS. WE SWITCHED THIS PAST YEAR TO JONES INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL AND COULDN'T BE MORE PLEASED. MY CHILD HAD GREAT TEACHERS (5TH GRADE TEACHERS HERE ARE THE BEST) AND SHOWED LOTS OF GROWTH ON THE END OF GRADE TESTS. JONES INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL IS DEFINITELY AN EXCELLENT PLACE FOR YOUR CHILD TO GET A GREAT EDUCATION.

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.
