I enjoyed my years at CCMS. I had attended 4 other schools before I began school at CCMS. Where most people have nothing to compare the school they attend I have several. I always felt safe and valued as a student. The teachers and administrators were open to ideas for changed in education and other opportunities. I always felt like they cared.

I have been going to Cedar Creek for two years. This is my last year there and it is so amazing that it deserves this.

The curriculum should be more challenging for the students. Need more extensive preparedness for the upcoming high school years and training for college.

I agree the school is ok. There is much room for improvement though. I've had problems in the past mainly in regards to teachers and principals following through with implemented plans, lack of communication when problems arise. I understand that not all students are pleasant, however when dealing with administrators there should be a cleaner line of communication.

Overall the school is ok. With any school you have to be an involved parent. Some of my concerns are: the homework line is not updated often enough, Parents normally don't have much prior notice when theirs a PTSO meeting to atten. I would love to attend more meetings then I do however; when you find out the day of the event, it makes your schedule juggling a little difficult.

I think the teachers are very organized and the do a great job with the resources they have. I think some of the children are rough but the staff does the best they can. I wish dress codes were enforced because some of the things worn don't comply with NC Public schools standards.

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.
