High School Information

During the 2012-2013 school year, North Carolina, along with many other states, adopted the Common Core and Essential Standards for defining what is taught in different courses. This spring, your child will be administered a new kind of classroom assessment.

Common Exams Include:

  • English Language Arts 1, 3, and 4
  • Geometry, Algebra 2, Pre-Calculus, Advanced Functions and Modeling
  • Earth/Environmental Science, Physics, Chemistry, Physical Science
  • American History 1 and 2, US History, World History, Civics and Economics
  • OCS English Language Arts 1, 3 and 4
  • OCS Financial Management, OCS Introduction to Math
  • OCS Applied Science

Common Exams follow a similar format to our new End-of-Course assessments as students will answer both multiple-choice and short answer questions prompting them to use higher level thinking skills.
