My nieces and nephews go to this school and they absolutely love it. The teachers are great and the assistants in the classrooms make all the difference in the world! When we moved to the area 2 years ago, I almost considered home schooling, but I'm so glad that I didn't! I have only good things to say about this school!

I think the teachers at Vass-Lakeview are fabulous. They really care about their students and go way above for them.

Admin. and teachers are so very caring and do a great job with such a diversity of students/I.E. Low and high income families

I agree with most everything written about this school. Great school. Two issues: 1. Teachers need to update websites, use them and email as a means of communication. 2. Teachers need to learn the value of saying Thank You and writing thank you notes!!

This was a wonderful experience for my entire family not just my two girls. my oldest went for two years and my youngest went for one. I know that I miss this school as much as my girls do. We are now in Alaska and they don't have the reapor that the staff at Vass-Lakeview has with all the kids. If your looking for a good school to send your kids to look no further send your kids here for sure.

This is a wonderful school. My children attended for 4 years, and everyone including teachers, TAs, the principal, custodians, cafeteria workers, front office staff, were all very friendly and truly care about children.

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.
