The North Carolina School Report Cards are one of the state's most comprehensive resources for information about student achievement, class size, school safety, school technology, and teacher quality at the school, district, and state levels for all traditional public schools and public charter schools. The 2012-13 school year was the first year that results were reported using North Carolina's new READY accountability model. This model highlights academic growth rates and the percentage of students who scored proficient on state assessments. To look up a school's report card, visit the NC School Report Cards website.
In North Carolina, enrollment procedures for public schools can vary from district to district. Contacting a school or district directly is the best way to get details.
In addition to embracing a strong traditional school system, North Carolina has adopted programs that offer families more educational options. One program provides a scholarship grant to families who have children with disabilities while the other gives scholarships to low-income families.
