Weekly Update

  • ECS News - February 5, 2016

    It has been a deep thinking week at Endeavor Charter School! 

    • 5th graders are building with centimeter and inch cubes to infer properties of volume.
    • 7th graders are creating their own businesses and deciding on percent mark-up and discounts to create the best profit.
    • 3rd graders were given jobs this week as part of their economy unit.  They will be "paid" today and get to feel like adults when they get their checks and go to the class bank.
    • 6th graders have been recreating tectonic plate movements with a graham cracker and icing lab. They further explored the Earth's movements creating basic seismographs in the classroom.   They are also waist deep in figurative language and digging dip down finding super snazzy sound devices to include in their poetry projects.
    • Kindergarteners have used several different math strategies to solve addition word problems.  They used manipulatives, number lines, drew pictures, tally marks, and wrote number equations.
    • 4th graders have been exploring our school using different formulas to find the area and perimeter of various figures.
    • 8th graders in Math 1 used area models to illustrate how to multiply binomials.
    • 1st graders worked hard to compare the Arctic and Antarctic regions to learn about how they are alike and different.
    Next Friday is our Day of Math.  Students are asked to wear something with a number on it! 
     
    *Be sure you've updated your calendar to indicate that Monday, February 15 is our snow make-up day.  It is no longer a holiday.  We hope to see everyone at school on that day!

  • 2014-2015 Endeavor Charter School Testing Summary

    Each October, the N.C Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI) releases the state testing results from the previous school year and each school receives a score based on their results. The score is calculated as a combination of raw results, proficiency and growth. Each school across the state receives a number grade and a letter grade as a result of their score. In December, these scores were released to the public.

     For the 2014-2015 school year, Endeavor received an A+NG score from NCDPI. Out of 2,446 schools across the state, only 69 schools received a grade of A+NG.  We are in the top 3% of all schools in North Carolina! We are not only one of the best charter schools in our local area but one of the best overall schools in the entire state of N.C!!!!!

     How do our results compare to the other schools in our area?

    Endeavor = A+NG

    Average Grade of 8 Charter Schools within 20 miles= B+ 

    Average Grade of 10 Public Schools within 10 miles= C+

    These results are something for the entire school community to be proud of! They are a testament to all of the hard work our students, teachers, parents and community have done to make Endeavor a great place to learn, grow and work. In the Wake Forest, N. Raleigh and Rolesville area, Endeavor has become the example of academic excellence.
