Parsley is a close-knit community with many parents walking their children to school. I love that students greet other students every morning!

It is a great school where teachers, administration and parents all work together to do their best for the students.

Moved her 2 years ago from the Northeast. My kids were in private schools up there. I can honestly say that the education they have received at Parsley is superior. The school is a safe, welcoming place. The teachers, parents and students are wonderful. My kids love Parsley!

I love this school. I have 2 children at Parsley and the teachers are wonderful. The parents are sooooo involved. My only concern is that the principle is a hard to talk too and not easily approachable. Other than that the school gets 5 stars.....

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.
