We just moved here summer of 2013 and I had two children in this school and already asked for a withdrawal to enter into another school. The students are trouble makers and when reported to the assistant principles and principle, it's simply a waste of time and things are brushed under the rug. Some teachers sit around and act like nothing is going on in class and allow these things among the students to happen. The school curriculum is good but there is a lot of bullying going on in this school so if you want your kids to be safe, don't send them here.

Good school but it need more excitement. There is too much work and not enough time to have fun and release stress from the classroom. The teachers should try to have fun with the lesson.

you would think that in todays world that everyone is created equal and that there is no discrimination base on race,sex ect. all children are not gang members. no one person can be judge and jury when something happen. the school lack leadership and does not care about the students.

I am a parent and I volunteer in the school. I have had very good experiences with teachers, especially those who have worked with me bringing outside presentations to expose the kids to opportunities they may not be aware of each year.

I have been appalled by this school for the last two years.I consider the teachers rude and lacking support for the students.I have previously asked questions concerning the ciriculum but have never received an answer. I am glad that we will be moving to a better school district at the end of the year.

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.
