  • Test data show improvement trend continues

    Three schools raised their school performance grade and 11 schools met or exceeded academic growth expectations, based on results of state accountability test results for 2018-2019. Lenoir County Early College High School repeated as the district’s best academic performer, with a 91.9 proficiency rating and an “A” letter grade. Two schools – South Lenoir High and Moss Hill Elementary – logged B’s and eight made C’s, including North Lenoir High, which – like Southeast and Moss Hill – clicked up a grade from 2018.
