I can't say enough about this school. I think Dr. Allen does a wonderful job of being a leader and friend to all the kids. I have always felt a warm and welcome feeling everytime I entered into the building. It is a school of high standards and it shows in the staff and children. I am so lucky to have my child attending such a great school with such a caring staff. Thanks for all you hard work.. you all desirve much more. Proud parent of a Brier Creek student.

Great School! The atmosphere makes you think of a private school. Very cozy and small. The teachers are great and friendly. Great parent involvement too.

Brier Creek Elementary is a fantastic school. The teachers are very knowledgeable, helpful and caring toward the students and parents. Dr. Allen (the principal) is a very hands on principal who cares about the well being and success of every student (as well as her faculty). Many parents are involved with their child, their child's teacher and the school. I am proud of the education my children are receiving at Brier Creek and hope I receive the same high standard of teaching from Brown Middle School and East Davidson High School. Thank you, Dr. Allen and staff.

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.
