Nestled in the center of North Carolina, just a thirty-minute drive from Raleigh, the Harnett County School system offers a small town atmosphere with BIG opportunities for students, staff and communities.
Our location is great—we are a short drive from both the coast and the mountains, as well as amusement parks and recreational activities along the Cape Fear River. Cost of living expenses in our area allow our teachers to maximize their disposable income.
We serve more than 20,000 students in our 28 schools. We pride ourselves in rich technology and robust professional development. To assist, each school is assigned an individual Instructional Coach to support teachers and their approaches to instructional practices. Each school is also provided a Recruitment and Retention Coach who serves new teachers within the district. Harnett County Schools will be the North Carolina model for developing globally competitive and highly productive citizens. Led by a progressive superintendent, knowledgeable school administrators and skilled teachers, our students and their success guide our mission each day.
