One of the most amazing schools in the county! Troutman Middle is top performing and top for caring, wonderful, and talented teachers! The difference from the elementary school to the middle is night and day and I couldn't be happier. The teachers love the school and actually want to go to work. The principal is caring and willing to help ALL students and staff, not just a few favorites. It is THE PLACE to be. Go Troutman Middle!!!!!

One of the best principals that I have had the good fortune to volunteer with. He is committed to making this school great and works hard to achieve any goal that is placed before him. He is funny, caring, intelligent and keeps the school in total control. No school is perfect but this one is close to it. There are some really great teachers at this school. Troutman is expected to be one of the fastest growing communities and with this influx of business professionals, the school has also seen a growth in parent involvement.

I am a parent here at Troutman Middle School. We have a wonderful principal, who believes in supporting our school, keeps thing under control but also knows how to have fun. The teachers are great. We could use more money and support. The facility needs updating! We need more funding. Our principal is doing all that he can.

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.
