Curious about Forest Pines Elementary in Wake Forest. Specifically:

1) Does anyone know what the overflow schools are for next year? I see enrollment is capped and overflow schools are assigned but I can't see what schools they are.

2) Does anyone know what happened there to make the EOG scores drop so dramatically in 2012 compared to 2011 and 2010? It appears they were well above average for those two years, and last year dropped at or below state average (almost half what they were the previous two years).

Any insight? Note - I'm asking about Forest Pines (traditional) NOT North Forest Pines (year-round).

1)-Recommended YR option was Wakefield and the traditional option was Richland Creek (Source: 3-4-14 work session BOE).

2)-2013 scores dropped for everyone due to realignment with Common Core--here are the scores prior to that. (Source: wcpss.net)

Hope that helps. :-)

Sorry, I just noticed the chart didn't copy in correctly. But I found the info on wcpss.net under testing.

As the previous poster stated, scores dropped for everyone, at all NC schools throughout the state for the 2012-2013 year, as they're being compared to a different standard than they once were. Forest Pines is still above the average for the state. Here is a news story from the fall of 2013 that explains a bit more:

My kids attend this school and we're happy with it.
