Posted April 29, 2009

I think that sometimes the schools are too concerned with teaching our kids on how to take tests, and not well. They do not have deadlines that are upheld, nor time timelimits that are set. They say it is for the kids who do not do well under time pressure. Unfortunatley that is not preparing them for the real world. There is real critisism out there, and there are real time crunches. Too often the schools here are teaching them about their feelings, which in the real world we as parents know your bosses really don't care about. They want someone who can think for themselves, use common sense, and get the job done right and efficiently.

i attended north moore for two years of my high school career and found it to be an excellent school with a staff and community that really care about the student body and have fond memories of my time there.

North Moore is a great school and experience for any student and their parent/guardian. The close environment ensures that no student is overlooked and thus creates a family atmosphere for all who enter.

I think that North Moore is one of the best schools in Moore County. The teachers try their best to teach the children and make them stive for excellence. The principal and assistant principal really care about the students. I have never had any problems with anyone at the school and anytime I have had a question the principal or teacher has always accomodated me.

North Moore faculty does not treat all students fairly. Student are treated on who they or their parents are. They are very dicrminatory. The resources officers go way overboard just to prove they are somebody with authority and this can affect a childs future. Overall the students at North Moore are not trouble makers they are excellent kids.

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.
