Mission, Vision and Beliefs

Moore County Schools offers a comprehensive curriculum for grades pre-K-12 that includes workforce development, programs for special needs and gifted students, and arts education. All three high schools offer a variety of Advanced Placement courses, as well as other academically challenging opportunities for all students.

The district's students have consistently met or exceeded growth expectations in the state's "ABCs" accountability program.

Moore County Schools supports the efforts of teachers pursuing National Board Certification.

Moore County, North Carolina, is economically diverse and noted for its high quality of life. Although agriculture has always played an important part in the county's economics, today's major industries include tourism, health care and education.

Pinehurst, home of the 2014, 2005 and 1999 U.S. Open Golf Championships, is world renowned for golf and recreation. Sandhills Community College, the first community college in the state, is recognized as one of the premier community colleges in the nation.


We strive to be the standard for excellence in education in North Carolina.
