The morale at this school is incredibly low. There is a lack of support and resources for the students. The school has been low achieving and is getting worse each year.

This school has been on a steady decline for the worse over the past 5 years. I have 3 children that have attended West Oxford and Credle. It's amazing how much of a difference there is between the two schools. Credle is a way better school- both educationally and administratively. I live the same distance between the schools but the board states that I have to send my two little ones to West Oxford. It's a terrible school and I want them to go to Credle. I have been researching private schools, but then I was thinking about how much I pay in property taxes and feel that I have a right to put these children in a good school in the district that I pay for.

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.
