Not a very happy school. Teachers have a bullying attitude. Motto is I don't care if you pass or fail. I will see you next year in MY class!!
—Submitted by a parent


Posted February 2, 2011

The Resource Dept is the best. If your child has a communication disorder the Resource Dept. really helps them. On the other hand the kindergarten teachers are not compassionate and love to suspend kindergardeners for petty things and laugh about it later. A few good teachers there, most are very unfriendly and snotty acting. They love to push getting your kids medicated. They do not foster originality. Minorities and not welcome here.

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.
