—Submitted by a parent


Posted July 14, 2008

I have been an employee of pilot for the past 19+ years. I have seen this school grow and the children thrive in a caring and loving enviroment. I am not a parent of a student now but both of my children did attend school here. They were very prepared for middle and high school. I am a school bus driver and cafeteria worker.

Posted June 12, 2007

Pilot is a great school! My daughter is in 2nd grade and I could not ask for a better learning environment for her. The teachers and support staff are wonderful and the administration is exceptional (especially the assistant principal). I feel very fortunate that my child attends Pilot and would recommend this school to any parent who wants his/her child going to a school where she/he will be taught in a caring manner.

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.
