growing up I attended schools in the county that had extremely old text books, moldy classrooms, poor infrastructure which severely restricted learning conditions, teachers who were somewhat apathetic towards their students, old schools in general (the former Beaufort Elementary School which was just replaced was originally Beaufort High School - where my grandfather graduated, to give you an idea). I can go on and on about problems with the school system, especially on the eastern part of the county. There are some great people involved with the schools, but they are the only reason my experience was memorable..the learning environment and facilities were below a standard most people would come to expect

Here is a link with some school information.

I know we have people who move into the county just for the school system.

The large tax base of rental properties lets the county spend money on schools and still have low taxes.

I have been told that this is a bit of a sore spot in this state. education is sub-par all over. excellent university system, just not very good public k-12 schools. perhaps it is getting better though.

The Topsail School District has been rated No. 1. We moved down here from Va for that reason and also to be on the water. We love it here.
