Posted June 28, 2008

My child is a student at this school and I have had no problems with the quality of teachers and overall staff here. I feel that the school gets judged in a negative way because it is located next to a goverment housing complex. I am very sad to see that people judge children on where they live. Just because a child is growing up in goverment housing does not mean that child is not capable of being a good student and a good friend to someone else's child or that the child will be a 'bad influence'. I feel that the staff at this school is definetly 'up to par' and if you look at recent test scores that will be proven. Hopefully this site will soon update these scores. There will be issues at any school you send your child- I realize that, we should all remember that.

The teachers at this school work very hard to establish a rapport with the children and parents. Unfortunately, the principal does not feel this is important. Teachers are under an enormous amount of pressure from the administration and children are the ones who suffer. The students and families here are outstanding! With another administrator, this school would be the best in Person County.

My grandson is in the 3rd grade at this school, and his teacher is not good. I feel like this school should be rebuild in another neighborhood I think this is a influenced on the teachers, because most of the children come from the projects.

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.
