School Improvement Planning

Our School Improvement Plan (SIP) is a working document that is used to drive instructional decisions and processes in order to ensure achievement and high academic growth for all students. To see the Estes Hills SIP, visit the School Improvement Team page. The data on which this plan is based comes from EOG/EOC testing data, the NC School Report Card, the Teacher Working Conditions Survey, and our Comprehensive Needs Assessment.
