I went to Flat Rock when it first opened up. I stayed there 6-8 and my experience there is very interesting. 6th grade for me was great. The students were great and the environment was amazing. The teachers were also amazing to be with. They helped the students and loved to interact with the class Then 7th grade came. Things starting going downhill for the school. Fights starting happening. Students bringing drugs there. Drama. Obviously every school is going to have this but Flat Rock does not know how to deal with this stuff. Most of the students don't do their work. The teachers are great but I've had experience with teachers that obviously don't know what they are doing. Flat rock is known for its fights and drama. Test scores are said to not be that great. For some students they will have a great time. For some..not. Mines was in between. As 8th grade came close I was on my knees. I wanted to get away from flat rock. Now that I have.. It's a relief.

I AM THINKING ABOUT MOVING DOWN TO NORTH CAROLINA, IN THE YEAR OF 2015, AFTER MY DAUGHTER FINISHES 5TH GRADE, FROM YORK, PENNSYLVANIA.

if you think about it , its all on how your child behaves overall. if they are good kids , then they should know right from wrong, and do whats right. no one pressures anyone to do anything they shouldn't do, and if they do, its not right, flat rock is a place where you either can choose to learn or not. It's been 3 amazing years there and now that im going to high school i leave amazing memories behind. I Suggest be friendly to the teachers, i can guarantee you, there will be one staff at flat rock that understands you. I can also guarantee you that you will have a teacher you won't like , but that's life for you. Middle school is about pre-teens finding their inner being and learning things on another level. Flat rock is definitely where you'll find all of that .

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.
