I think that this school is a great opportunity for a child to reach it's full potential! My daughter recently moved away but in her 3 years at CFMS her grades rose incredibly! She was a bright child but at her other school she wasnt given the chances to learn! But at CFMS that is what they are all about! Learning!

I think this school is ok. positive things are that the school nice an in good shape. bad thing is that they a little to tricked about the students. on thing I don't like is that is the dress code and the principal is not doing what she pose to be doing. but other wise, its a great school.

My two kids went to CFMS and hardly liked any of the teachers.. Most of the teachers are very rude, and disrespectful to not only my kids but me as a parent. These things should be worked on!

This school is like an institution for delinquents. The children nor the parents are respected. Way to strict. They run around putting out fires on a daily basis when they should find(accept) the problem and work to solve the underlying problem as opposed to out of school suspensions.

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.
