I am a former teacher at Brookside. The staff there is very caring and loving! They are truely interested in each child's education and well being! You won't find a more deticated principal anywhere!

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.
