It’s nearly that time again. The summer is winding down and school will be starting soon. The familiar yellow buses will be heard trolling the streets to pick up students. The car pools will be lining the entrance and exits to Brunswick County, NC schools. The yellow lights on the School Zone signs will be flashing to remind us to slow down as we pass the schools. Inside the buildings themselves, kids will be reconnecting with old friends and making new ones. Brunswick County, NC offers elementary, junior high and high schools as well as a K-8 school, a 9-12 alternative school and an Early College High School. The system also offers specialized services for students with disabilities and those who are learning English as a second language; enhanced programs for the gifted learner; a fine arts program and many extracurricular opportunities and competitive athletic programs. There are those students who will not be riding in school buses or sitting in car pools. These students, though home schooled, have to follow the same attendance, testing and immunization requirements as the public school students and their classes are scheduled during the same nine month period. As alternatives to the public school system, charter schooling, Montessori schooling and Christian schooling are available as well. You will find information about these below:
