Salamanders buckle down this week as standardized test-taking gets underway. All FBRA students take the North Carolina End-of-Grade tests (EOGs) to determine mastery in both math and reading. In addition to the EOGs, 8th graders take the Asheville High School Level 1 Spanish placement exam, as well as the Biology and Algebra I End-of-Course exams. FBRA graduates will have the potential to take advantage of some of the higher-level course offerings in high school. Finish strong Salamanders!
