In the past year I have learned that all the drilling seems to be federally based, not locally. Also, I have noticed more extracurricular activities being introduced and feel the enthusiasm in the children growing stronger. I think the school is on the right track, despite the difficulties created by Bush's 'No Child Left Behind' blunder. Great job overcoming, Bes!

Both of my children went to this school before we moved to Hawaii. I am so happy that my daughter will still be in this school now that we are back. After living in Hawaii and dealing with the school there, both my children and myself are looking forward to being home. Bridgeton Elementary is a place where teachers, staff and parents come together to support each other and the children. I would recommend this school to anyone moving to the area.

In our nice new building, children are going strong in mind and body. The teachers here are wonderful, caring people. Great care is taken to insure that all of the children are educated and safe, most classrooms offer a loving and caring enviroment for children to learn. I do feel that this school lacks in the area of physical education and fitness, but there is no other school I would rather my children attend.

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.
