Both of my kids have attended this school. They have had awesome teachers and the school administration is awesome.

Posted February 25, 2010

I have found this school to lack in the ability over all to educate children. I have had a couple of good teachers, but then some teachers who could not find their own way out of paper bag, must less instruct my kid how to get out of a paper bag. One year I was in a meeting with a teacher who had plans to flunk 20% of her class in 1st grade. This year I have another child in 1st grade and it is not going well at all. I think that someone independantly needs to look at this school and give some suggestions as to improving the school, classes and such.

I also think that they are very over disciplined. Also the teachers are always right or just lie to you when they're not! Wish i could homeschool, or that the teachers would try to be a little more loving!

They over discipline their students. The teachers and staff are always right and they dont like you disagreeing with them! I am trying to move now and hope to be out of there soon!

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.
