All four of our middle schools have received national recognition for their emphasis on strong academics, sensitivity to adolescents’ needs and interest, and commitment to equal access to high-quality education; thus earning the designation as Schools to Watch. Our SAT and ACT scores continue to be above the state and national average. Our schools continue to receive positive recognition for student performance on the North Carolina ABCs accountability model. Our students excel in many extracurricular areas such as band, chorus, and athletics.
