About Neuse Charter School
Johnston County's First Charter School
If you are a parent in Johnston or surrounding counties with a child approaching grades K-5, we invite you to explore the many advantages of Neuse Charter School, Johnston County's first and only free public charter school. Officially opened on August 27, 2007, the school offers an international studies focus, including foreign language as early as kindergarten. Please don't miss this unique opportunity for your child.
NCS is a free public school, chartered by the State of N.C. and funded by state and county per pupil allotments as well as federal grants.
Any child who is a legal resident of North Carolina and who has not been expelled from another school can attend.
NCS provides instruction for grades K-5 in 2007-08 and will add a grade level each year thereafter through 8th grade.
Our goal is to keep each class size around 20 students.
Neuse Charter School is not able to offer transportation, although assistance will be provided to arrange carpooling, public transportation, or other means for getting children to school. Additionally, NCS does not provide food services.
Neuse Charter School values the unique talents and interests of each student and is committed to building a caring, vibrant, and innovative academic environment to promote learning among its students and faculty. NCS will set high expectations for students and teachers, will offer international exposure with help from World View to foster global awareness, and will work to create meaningful partnerships with parents and the community.
