This is an old school but what the kids learn and the oppertunities they offer are great.

The caliber of students going to this school is far below high school level; we might as well call it a middle school. Looking at the posts of other parents here and I really can't blame some of the students I've seen.

Great improvements have been made by this schools since Mr. Sparger arrived. This is a great learning environment for teens. The variety of extracurricular activities is vast. I am happy my children this school and I chose this school district over all other area districts based on the recommendation of area residents.

The principal at this school is a great man. He IS concerned with his students. I would know personally from all the things he has been there with me through. I have had a rough time in high school and he has been there supporting me every step of the way. He does like his school to be represtened in a nice way but I can assure you that he is concerned with his students. Mr. Sparger is the most caring principal that I have ever come in contact with and if you were to know him instead of just assuming that he cares more about the school board you would see that also. Any good principal would care equally about both but I strongly disagree with your comment about where his concerns lay. Speak of what you KNOW not of what you ASSUME. -Samantha Myer

The Principal needs to be more concerened with his students instead of wanting to make the school look good in the School Boards eyes!

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.
