I go here now, and it's an alright school. I honestly wish I went to a better one, but for where I'm located, it's a very good school. They are still building things and we're nearly packed as it is. I'm a junior and I feel like we don't have a lot of student support for things like homecoming or senior trip (both got cancelled because of lack of interest). I don't know if that's just the way teenagers are now, but we do have a lot of facilities for a school in Wendell.

My son is a freshman at Corinth Holders high school and we have been extremely displeased with his first year there. Administrators run the school like North Korea. They are dictatorial and inflexible. The smart lunch concept sounds great in theory, but results in more unnecessary disciplinary action against students than actual additional academic support. 100's of students regularly get after school detention due to a flawed system that is rigid and inflexible. For example, students were required to attend one tutorial for each class at the beginning of each semester, however in the first 3 weeks of this semester there were 8 snow days. Students were not given extra time to make up tutorials despite so much cancelled school. In some cases, it was impossible for students to meet the standard expected of them because of the tutorial schedule and cancelled school. Students were unfairly punished for not being able to achieve the impossible. 100's of students, including honor roll students were given after school detention. Just one of many examples of poor decision making by administrators.

We moved here from overseas and my son is having a difficult time adjusting to this school. He is in his junior year. He is in the minority at this school. The kids are very very snobbish and they are not very welcoming to new students of different ethnicity. He's been at Corinth Holders for 4 months now and he truly HATE it!! There are some good teachers there! My son struggles everyday to get up, get ready and go to this school!

We moved here from another state last year and have been thrilled with our experience!! Corinth Holders' principal, faculty, and staff are the epitome of what it means to be educators. They truly care that they are molding amazing teenagers into productive, thoughtful adults. I am so proud to call myself a pirate, and i know my girls are too.

I am very impressed. The atmosphere of the school is great. This is our first graduating class and I can honestly say I am proud to work at CHHS. I wasn't sure what to expect when I came in, but have been overwhelmed with the caliber of people that I work with on a daily basis. Everyone pulls together and unlike my previous school, parents seem to know how to parent. Proud to be a pirate!

We are brand new to this school. When we moved back to the area we thought my son would have to go to Clayton High. They couldn't even register him until a day after school started and then proceeded to tell me he didn't go to Clayton he would be going to Corinth Holders. Our experience with Corinth Holders started the moment we pulled into the campus and my son was smiling from ear to ear. We have had a fantastic experience from the person in the front office to guidance counselor, to the bus driver and of course the teachers. My son was set to graduate early and has decided to stay for the full year because of his experiences so far at this school. Now THAT says a lot!!!!

hmmmm....from what I heard, most of the teachers from Clayton High School were desperately trying to get jobs there when they opened haha. A close friend substitutes there on a regular basis and said the principal is doing a marvelous job! It's about time kids are required to LEARN instead of going to school to socialize and make out and get high. Cudos to the staff and the administration for making it happen...hope my son makes it over there this year!!

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.
