I have had both of my kids to attend this school in which my youngest still attends there. My son has now graduated high school. I don't like this school, I didn't like it then and I don't like it now. The principal has no idea what is going on. There has been incidents that has happened at the school and the SRO on duty had no idea of the incidents and how the situations were handle.

My youngest daughter is still attending the school. she is in the specail education classes and I think she is getting the best education around the special education teachers have brought her along way and they continue to help her in becoming the best she can be . So pleases keep the good work up teachers are doing a great job. God Bless

The school is okay, but the principal is out of touch with reality and needs to retire like she should have 10 years ago

North Stanly has very caring teachers who want to help all the students. Most of the students want to attend college of some sort. The kids get along really well. Parents need to be more active in checking on their kids' progress. We just need to keep a football coach for more than 3 years...

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.
