    The school performs so low I wish I had purchased my home somewhere else. The last time I checked it was in the lower 60th percentile in the state.

    We are from Craven county and I am very sad about the Libray and reading program that this school has. My children have wonderful teachers that pick up the slack. Libray is not even on the dewey decimial system (not good for students that will need this in higher education).
