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.

    This is probably the most culturally diverse elementary school in Buncombe County and it is a beautiful thing to witness. As a PTO member and substitute teacher I have seen how much the teachers administration and guidance counselor care about the success of the students. I am impressed by how creative the teachers are and make learning the fundamental subjects fun. The school also offers music and art and has a great computer lab. There is a 3rd and 4th grade after school chorus that performs concerts around the county. My child's last four years at Johnston Elementary have been a wonderful experience.
