I am not sure about this school so know nothing about it,, just researching it thanks


Posted May 21, 2013

The students at the school, feel like they run the school. They do not care about their education. You can count on one hand the parents that are involved and when a parent is concerned, they do no know how to handle it. The atmosphere is not one that is condusive to learning. It's easy for kids to get caught up in the "do nothing" vibe of the school. AIG programs are good, those teachers care, but what about the other students?

When people find out that my children go to this school, they usually make some comment about the school being rough and rowdy. I would like to let everyone know that this school is great. Parents are welcomed on a regular basis. Teachers are highly trained and seem to genuinely care for the students. The building is large and well-equipped, and every classroom has the latest technology including Activboards, computers, sound systems, etc. Security cameras in the halls and a full time nurse make me feel that my children are safe 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.
