We invite you to explore our district website and the websites of our 11 schools, and join us in our shared mission to "Educate Every Child."

Not only is Dare County a beautiful place to live, it is home to some of the finest schools in North Carolina. Just as our area is steeped in rich history and unique culture, Dare County has a tradition of providing our young people with a quality education. Our schools serve approximately 5,000 students and provide Dare County's youth with a wealth of opportunities. Our teachers and staff are forming strong community partnerships that are transforming classroom studies into life-long interests, helping to motivate students toward further education and valued career paths.

We appreciate your interest in and support of our students and teachers.
