Special Notice - October 16, 2017
As of this date, classes at Pinecrest High School are filled through April and classes at Union Pines High School are filled through February. Please be advised that we do not accept "walk-ins" and there is no wait list. In the rare event that there are last minute openings, they are given to students who need special consideration as specified by law.
I am often asked why we do not offer more classes. We do offer enough classes to meet the needs of our student population and simply cannot afford the luxury of offering classes that are not full. Parents need to start planning when their child is near 14-1/2 years of age. Consider extra curricular activities as well when planning.
