I had two kids go through this school and they had a wonderful experience. The teachers and staff are dedicated to providing a great learning experience. They also have a lot of parental involvement through volunteering. I love this school.

The school is very nice. It is clean and comfortable during the summers because of the central air that many schools do not have in other states. Making the classrooms a good learning environment. Overall the school has an excelent curriculum and extra activities that enhance the learning experience. ...  Read more

We transferred here from another Middle school with our children and I have a hard time getting the teachers to answer emails and notes sent to school.

This school could be better with the discipline. There are some children there that interfere with student learning. It is not fair to risk student learning due to behavior problems.

This is a great school on many levels. One issue it does have, however, is one of safety and consistency in delegation of consequences. While progressive in moving toward whole school IBMYP, bullying is not handled well. There are discrepancies in how discipline issues are handled--theft and harassement ...  Read more

North Carolina
* In 2011-2012 North Carolina used End-of-Grade (EOG) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 and 10 in reading and math, and grades 5, 8, and 10 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.
