The teachers in this school work very hard to make sure my child gets what she needs. My 7th grader is more excited about reading now than she ever has been thanks to her LA teacher. The math program allows my daughter to engage in lessons outside of school with video lessons that even teach me how to do the math that I have not had to think about in quite some time. I took the time to meet with my daughter's teachers, and they are a wonderful group of people. They truly care about the success of each and every one of their students. I know that my daughter is in good hands.

unorganized, rude staff and poor work ethic. It's seems that the teaches could care less if a child is placed in the proper classes or not. Or life the child is getting what they need form their classes. They just don't seem to care much at all. It's not their kids right.

Some great teachers!!! Some...not so much. Vice principal quite rude in treatment of others. Not addressing my son's need to be challenged sometimes despite promises to the contrary. Typical of any government entity.......do what you HAVE to and no more. My wife teaches in Wake and its pretty much the same all around. We take very active roles but are met with middling to poor responses most of the time. "Electives" are chosen for the students, which baffles me.

PLEASE ADD A 0 CATEGORY a 1 RATES THIS PRINCIPLE TOO HIGH! I recently went in to find out how my child was doing a the school and the principle for some unknown reason is rude to me. I can'tfigure it out as I have never met this woman before. I have to assume the teachers are better but I have heard they are not much either..

Like some things, but children are not treated uniquely enough. Too much shuffling of students midyear - not enough parent teacher involvement - did not even have an open house in fall 2009. My daughter had class changes four times in a school year - not for behavioral problems.

We also just relocated to this State and my daughter loves Archer Lodge. She said she feels more at home at this school and that the teachers and students were very friendly. As for teachers e-mailing people. I've used e-mail and gone through the schools engrade system and have had prompt responses regarding any of my questions.

Arhcer Lodge is Average. I had problems with the behavior of some student. But what really bothered is that my son was placed in classes that were too easy for him and no one was willing to address the issue. Even after I took time off of work, to visit the school's main office. I pulled my son out of that school because the quaily of my children's education is very important to me.

I am not to please with Archer Lodge Middle School. The teacher do not email the parents back. I have e-mail two teacher this school year and they did not e-mail me back. I even call one of the teacher and left a message for them to call me back and they didn't. The teachers tell parents they prefer e-mail instead of phone calls. Then the teacher should e-mail the parents back. This is called a lack of miscommunication. So teacher you if you prefer for parents to e-mail you, then you should e-mail back instead of ignore it.

My son is doing very good in ALMschool .And his teacher are very helpful to him.

My daugheter to this school last year when she was in 8th grade. Personally I do not think this is a good school at all. Some of the teachers were very rude and not helpful at all. Also the principle and assistant princple to me do not know what they are doing or how to run a good school enviorment. She went to riverwood in 6th and 7th grade and then she had to switch to Archers Lodge and 8th grade by far has been her worst year there.

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.
