There are not enough good things to say about this school. The teachers are very kind & friendly. The principal takes the time to get to know ALL students. Not only does she learn the names of the children but she also gets to know their siblings. There isn't a day when I drop my kids off that she doesn't say "hello" to their baby sister. We are leaving the school next week due to a job transfer and it just breaks my heart. PMES has done an amazing job with both of my daughters and they will never know how much they will truly be missed! Finding another school like this one will be very difficult. Keep up the good job PMES Staff! Your hard work does not go unnoticed!

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.
