I think South Stanly is a wonderful school, the disapline is great and the teachers care about the students and their education. Now both of my kids go to Monroe middle school totally different, high population, and very diverse. I think it's a very good school even though it's known for it's very bad rep. It's ok and I will be looking forward for them to be goin to Monroe high...

I have a daughter in 8th grade and am very pleased with SSMS. She is very active in sports and works very hard on keeping her grades up. The teachers have always been very supportive if there were any issues. Just wanted to post how happy I have been with SSMS and look forward to my 3rd grader attending in a couple of years. I do feel as though the 6th graders should be included in sports too.

As a parent of 3 children at SSMS,I have a pretty good look at all levels of the school, My children are in 6th, 7th, and 8th grades. The school is pretty good with the sports for the 7th and 8th graders, but the 6th graders are not allowed to participate in sports and I don't really know why. As far as the teachers at the school my experience with them has been pretty good, but there are some that I feel like should not be there, they don't know how to relate to children and those few teachers are very judgmental they don't believe that a child should be given second chances.

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.
