End of Class Tests (EOC)

In 2011-2012 North Carolina used End-of-Course (EOC) tests to assess high school students in Algebra I, English I, and Biology. The EOC tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of North Carolina. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the tests.

    This school is excellent. The teachers love their students and want them to realize their full potential.

    The teachers do not care about their students the school is boring and the food is terrible. Nobody cares about this place.

  • (7 years ago)

    This school is an unacceptable school for any student to attend I think that schools such as North Moore are perfect examples of how EMHS should be!
