My daughter went to this school, which was .5 of a mile from our house but we were not in the school district. In her second grade class there were kids sleeping at their desks and not turning in homework and were passing on the the next grade. When we moved to another district we found her classes at Thomasville were 1 to 2 years behind her current school. The failure rate on the EOG tests was over 80% at Thomasville, and at her new school it's less than 10%. The Thomasville school system is a joke and when you talk to other teachers from the area the laugh at Thomasville schools. Other than that the teachers were nice and trying to make it however they could at that school. I have always believed in education and my daughter was a straight A student at Thomasville. Now she is an A,B student and having to work for it. So if you want an easy school then go to Thomasville, otherwise move on.

The academic program for my child when she was in the first grade was great. I was able to get involved with a crazy work schedule. Mrs. Miller is awesome. Thank you for making my child's year the best. I would also like to say to Mrs. Miller wow I wished I had a teacher like you. I hope when my son gets to the first grade your his teacher. Again thank you.

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.
