Both my son's have gone to Erwin Middle School. My youngest is in his final year here and my oldest now goes to East Rowan High. I have been very happy with this school. The teachers are very compassionate and work hard with the students. I am very proud of what my son's have learned and of their achievements in this school. I would recommend this school to anyone that needs a great school with zero tollerance for bullying and an excellent teaching staff!!

My child goes to school at Erwin Middle School and gets picked on all the time. She gets picked on about what she wears mostly. Her property gets mistreated and she gets called names. I have brought this subject to the superintendents attention. He still has not done anything about it. The only advice they give my child is to just stay away from all the people including the mutual friends. So I do not think that this is a very good leadership program if you ask me. I can say though for this grade that they are in the teachers are better than I have experienced in the past.

I am a teacher at Erwin Middle School and words do not do it justice. I have often scoffed at the application of the word 'family' for a work environment, but it truly is like that. We work together for the common good of our students. Teachers put in hours of overtime (unpaid) just to make sure their students have a fun, educational learning environment. I hope that my child will get to go to a school as wonderful as Erwin.

I go to Erwin and this is my third year, and its the best school you could go to. It has the best ISS teacher, best and smartest i think math teachers. We have the highest scores! Its a great fun learning experince.

All the teams at Erwin have teachers who can teach regular classes, 'and' AIG classes, so both students can be all mixed together on the same team. (Not just one team that's AIG) So if your student is AIG english, but needs regular math, Erwin can offer that, instead of 'all' classes being AIG.

Charles Erwin Middle has been a positive experience for my child. If you have a child with a learning disablity you have the best EC teachers here. Every teacher whether for disable or diabled students that I have had contact with are top notch. Everyone to the most part is very responsive to a parents concerns...

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.
