Closed Schools/Under-Utilized Schools


A "capped" school is one whose student capacity is at  95% or higher.

The following schools are "capped" and closed to all new transfers and discretionary admissions for the 2024-2025 school year:

  • Pinecrest High School
  • Union Pines High School
  • West Pine Middle School

Tuition requirements for approved out-of-county discretionary admission is waived at the following schools designated as under-utilized for the 2023-2024 school year:

  • Elise Middle School
  • Highfalls Elementary School
  • North Moore High School
  • Robbins Elementary School
  • Westmoore Elementary School

Under-utilized schools, by Board policy, are (1) a school currently under-enrolled and projected to remain so based on growth projections; (2) a school that has sufficient space, staffing, grade-level capacity and appropriate programming as defined in Policy 6210.2 and its implementing regulation to accommodate the student's enrollment; and (3) allowing the enrollment and waiving tuition would adversely impact the Board's overall student assignment plans and goals.
