I have graduated from this school and over the past four years I have watched it spiral downward. In the past few years this school has went through at least 20 new teachers. The teachers try desperately to teach the students however they are unable to with constant nagging from the administration and with the attitude problems within students that are ignored by said admin.

I am an alumnist this is my alma mater and what a beautiful one it is Greene Central is a lovely school I graduated in 2006 with many honors proudly.

As a former student, I must say that my educational experience at Greene Central was great. As I continued my education at NCSU I found that I was very well prepared to handle all of my college courses. As a small, rural high school, Greene Central was not able to offer some of the 'elective' courses or activities that other larger district did. However, the focus was directed on a strong, well balanced, quality education. Interesting fact: I found myself to be much more prepared for college than some friends from much larger and wealthier school districts. Small school and great teachers.

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.
