i don't like the school. the students are WAY too ignorant and always think they're better than other people. other kids from different schools get teased and laughed at out of school. those students just need to learn some common courtesy

A great school. The staff and administration are excellent. Mr. Lawson cares about every student.

I love it. The teachers at PMMS are extremely helpful. Mrs. Spell taught us a great deal of things (math, science, and ofcourse helped us when we came to her for personal problems. I personally think the people that should write these reviews are the students who attend the classrooms each day. My 3 years at PMMS have been very peaceful, Everyone tries to get along with everyone, and the teachers couldnt be more comprehensive. Our 8th grade teacher {Mrs.Spell} was like our second mother. Non prejudist school.I love PMMS. I do so very much recomend you to enroll your kids here.

I dont understand why Mr.Lawson is not more helpful when kids are being bulled at school. I have talked to Mr.Lawson and his attitude is not warm or comforting to the children or parents.

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.
