My children have improved 100% in there grades. The teachers are great with all children. I think this school one of the best school my children have ever been too. I know this for a fact, because they have been to 3 other schools. Thier grades have never been as well as they where this year, and the year before too. One of my children that is in the 6th grade sometimes has trouble in math and you can always count on the teachers to be there to help her. I have to say this is the GREATEST school in stanly county.

This is a fantastic middle school! Both of my children have went to this school since they were both small-which is when it was an elementary school. My son is now in the 9th grade there and my daughter is at North Stanly High. Both of my kids have had ( for the most part) great teachers and have liked almost all! How many kids can say that??

Ok, so I was looking for a picture of NLCMS for my health project when I came across this site. I am not a parent, but an 8th grade student at New London Choice Middle. I have been going there since I was in the 6th grade, and I love it! It is the best school in the world to me, and I love every teacher there. I think this school is so great.

My child has been in 3 different schools,in 3 different states and now she is at new london middle school this year. New london middle is by-far the 'best'! My child has been motivated and influenced by those teachers to learn and do her best like none she has ever had before. I can't say enough about the teachers and I give lots of the credit to Mrs. Jessie Morton for that! She is an awesome principal that handles this school in a very professional manner, supports her staff and parents, very kind to everyone, and her top priority is 'education'. New London Middle offers everything your child needs to be successful in our upcoming world.Thank you New London Middle school staff for making this a great place for all children.

The educational climate at New London Choice Middle School excites children and encourages them to excell. Teachers truly care about students. EOG scores and computer test scores rank among the highest in the county.

This school has so much to offer students. All of their exploratory classes are wonderful. My child has done very well at this school and his EOG's continue to rise. The faculty are very easy to talk to, if I have ever had a question they have always answered and helped at any time i have needed them. The over all experience my son has had socailly and educationally have been an experience I wish that I could have experienced in this county.

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.
