Our daughter moved to East after 8 years at a Christian school and absolutely loves it! Mrs. Smith is a one-of-a-kind principle! She loves the students and does everything she can to encourage them to keep their grades, as well as their morals, up. This is a superior school!

I am currently a Senior at East Davidson and I love it. East is a home for the students, staff and administration. We love our school. The teachers are incredible and Mrs. Smith is by far the best principal I have ever had. She is so dedicated to the school and she call's us 'her children'. I would recommend East to anyone that wants to learn, have fun, and enjoy high school years.

This is my daughters 2nd year at this school and the staff and mainly the principal are awesome. They set high standards for these students and the principal treats these children as if they were one of her own. A great school and a great learning enviroment. Any questions or concerns the principal takes care of promptly. She deserves our praise.

This is my daughter's first year at East. So far, we have been pleased with the school and with Ms. Smith the princiapal. My only concern has been with getting in touch with some of the teachers that are also athlete staff members, but once this was brought to Ms. Smith's attention, this concern was quickly resolved to everyone's satisfaction.

unless the students want to learn and not just attend class, the davidson county school system will not help them. i am a former student and had i not pursued my personal education, i would have been spoon-fed, the same curriculum for four years.

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.
