Posted October 28, 2012

This is our second year at VB. I had posted concerns in my review last year about communication and I'm happy to report that I do not have the same issues this year! My son is thriving under the structure and rigor of his first grade teacher (it was a big adjustment though from K!) Vinson Bynum has a fantastic staff, supportive parents and a great community feel. I'm so glad we chose to stay at this school! My son's readin has really taken off 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.
