Posted January 8, 2013

I have had 2 kids go through Cove Creek School. I feel like they are not challenged at all. 50% of the staff are inadequate. The teachers are often absent from class and have a substitute. The gym teacher is fat, lazy, a bad influence, and a terrible coach. Some of the classes they have are BS... I consider them to be not much more than Day Care. Most of the teachers have absolutely no idea how to maintain students interest or discipline.

The fact that all the teachers are so committed to helping the students even working together with after school teachers to make sure the students get as much help as possible to help them succeed.

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.
