Welcome to our Class!
Computer Skills have become an integral part of our Pamlico County Middle School Curriculum at each grade level.  All students, parents, teachers, and administration have embraced the curriculum and emphasize its importance and objectives in all core subject areas.

The eighth grade students are required to take the NC Computer Skills Test.  This test consists of two parts:  a multiple choice and a performance (hands-on applications).  All students are required to pass both parts of the test in order to graduate from high school.  Most of our students embrace the challenge and perform above state requirements and average.  In the last four years 89.5% to 97.5% of eighth grade students who have taken the NC Computer Skills Test were proficient in computer skills.  We are very proud of our students and their desires not just to succeed, but excel!.
