This school is like a 'Best Kept Secret'! We moved here from a private school in VA, I was really worried if our son would be academically challanged and he is! The entire staff is beyond GREAT! Some of the BEST teachers you could ever hope to find; they all truly care about their students! You couldn't ask for a better principal, she is very hands-on! A wonderful learning environment!! Best move we made!

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.
