About the District

Welcome to Johnston County Schools! Our district serves over 33,000 students in grades pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade. Doubling the student population in the past 15 years, Johnston County’s growth is due to the excellent education JCS provides to our students. We enjoy strong community support through funding for new schools, partnerships with business and faith based organizations, and fabulous parental involvement. What are the results of this support?Our graduation rate has climbed by more than 13 percent in the past four years, while our dropout rate has fallen by nearly 50 percent in the same period.We are proud of our 304 Nationally Board Certified teachers. Johnston County Schools is accredited by AdvancEd, meaning that our graduates are prepared to be accepted into the finest universities and colleges. Extracurricular activities abound through strong arts and athletics programs. Global is not just a buzz word in our vision statement. Our diverse culture includes over 45 languages spoken by students and their families. The Visiting International Faculty Program provides teachers from around the world and many of our schools are involved in global partnership programs. It is our commitment to live our vision as we empower all students to become successful in a global society!

Second-to-None Facilities!

Every Johnston County school building provides state-of-the-art facilities for students, thanks largely to the community's support for five bond referenda, the most recent having been passed for $57 million in November 2013. These votes have been passed with overwhelming winning margins since school improvement efforts began in 1989. As result, the district has spent more than $400 million on construction projects - which has included the demolition and replacement of all of the district's 50-year-old, three-story buildings. Two new high schools were the most recently constructed.
