This is a HORRIBLE school! We had to fill out a Bully Report on the first day of school due to my child being slammed into lockers for no reason whatsoever. The offender was not even disciplined. Then my son was threatened and "revenged" until we finally had to pull him and his brother out of the school. There was no learning whatsoever that took place. The kids tested well below grade level after attending for 1 year. Theft was rampent. Class schedules were very unbalanced (too many math and english and no computer, science, soc studies, music or art). My children learned to cheat and hate school here. One teacher read newspapers and ignored kids. On the positive side, there was one REALLY EXCELLENT math teacher that we hated to leave behind.

Posted June 9, 2006

I was totally disappointed with SMS as a whole. The unorganization of the entire staff was very evident. The office staff is a joke, no one knows what is going on and everyone wants to direct you to someone else. The principal is clueless. The teachers try to be helpful and are quick to respond but they lack the support from management staff. The building itself is rundown and in need of upgrading. Septic bubbling up in the courtyard area. Mega units that need attention. I will not be sad to leave this school system.

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.
