  • Military Connected Student Information
    Parents and guardians, if you have a student in your household who has an immediate family member connected with the U. S. military, please take a few minutes to complete a short form. This includes family members serving on active duty, in the National Guard and Reserves, Retired Military, Disabled Veterans or Civil Service Employees. The information on the short survey form is being collected on behalf of the North Carolina General Assembly to ensure that the unique needs of military-connected students are met. We would appreciate your participation.

     AP Test Registration Information

    1.       The state of North Carolina will ONLY pay for the tests that the student is currently enrolled in for the 2014-2015 school year.

    2.       Any other test that is needed or desired to be taken will be funded by the student/parent/family.

    3.       Students can sign up for any AP tests they would like to take but the first two points are very important to consider and understand.

    4.       No money will be exchanged once the student is registered if they register for a class they are taking during the 2014-2015 school year.  If there is a balance due to a student taking extra tests, then the balance will be calculated by the school and the school will report that to the student.

    5.       All money for AP tests will need to be given in person to Sheila Starnes in the guidance office.

    6.       On the AP test registration form, if the student qualifies for reduced payment, then please still check that box even if the test will be paid for by the State of North Carolina.


    Any questions about AP Test Registration can be directed to Mark Gould at 336-570-6161 ext. 39603

  • After school tutoring is now available for your child.  Teachers are recommending students for tutoring by using THIS FORM and filling in the top half of the form and sending the form home for the parent/guardian to fill out and return.  Tutoring is available for 1 hour on Tuesdays and Thursdays (3:30-4:30 PM.)  Bus transportation is provided based on the information submitted on the form.  We are asking that students who are recommended for tutoring commit to at least one day a week but may stay both days and continue in the tutoring program until their grade improves in the course. If you have questions, concerns, or feel your child would benefit from this program and they have not been recommended by their teacher, please contact Janice Grant or Stephanie Graves.
