School has a great faculty and the students seem to be very mature.

I love my school and think that we are lucky to have the teachers that we do.

I like the School but have a problem with the leadership and the way problems are handled by staff. It is very inappropriate and immature at the way some kids get treated. We will move when our other children are able to start school due to the leadership experience we have had in East Wilkes High School.

East Wilkes is an excellant school. It is a small school where the students are known by name and get a lot of personal attention if they will accept it. Parents are kept informed of students progress and offered participation in the helping process. Everything is not perfect but overall I have been very pleased.

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.
