I graduated from Maplewood and no matter what people say, this school is excellent.

Some of older teachers and administration are burned out. They need younger teachers who want to teach our kids. The library staff is excellent. They are definately for our kids.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Tennessee used the Gateway/End-of-Course (EOC) exams to test high school students in language arts, math, science, and social studies upon completion of relevant courses. Students must pass the algebra I, English II, and biology I tests, called the Gateway exams, in order to graduate. The Gateway/EOC exams are standards-based tests that measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of Tennessee. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
