End of Grade Tests (EOG)

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.

    Bearfield Primary is a great school. It fosters the whole child and it welcomes parental involvement. The teachers are highly qualified. Students are exposed to art music media and physical education daily.

    Bearfield is a Pre-K to 3 school. I feel the academic programs are very good. They are able to provide each child with the level of academics needed. For example my child is in advanced level classes and I feel is challenged . Yet she has children in her class who have learning disabilities and they are helped as well. They have the BEST reading program in the BEARS/Cubs program. It is a leveled reading program provided in small groups. Each child is in a group of 6-8 children of their own reading level and they get individual attention. Our reading levels have soared under this program. The children are re evaluated after 6 weeks and are placed in another group according to their growth and reading level. The Parent Team is very active and is supported by both staff and admin. Parent are truely part of the BPS family.
