    An enrollment of approximately 21,000 students makes the Public Schools of Robeson County one of the largest school systems in the state. The 2,400 principals, teachers and behind-the-scenes personnel provide the young people in our 36 schools an effective education. They also make us one of the largest employers in Robeson County.

    The ability to collaborate with the University of North Carolina at Pembroke and Robeson Community College gives us access to programs and facilities that have the potential of adding to what we already offer our students. Additionally, the surrounding community is active in helping our students make career decisions. Programs such as JobReady emphasize the foundation and employment skills and educational pathways necessary to pursue career interests for students not interested in four-year college programs. Regardless of where our graduates go, it is our ultimate goal to provide our students with the knowledge, skills and attitude that will ensure each one is a strong student, a confident person, a responsible citizen and a contributing member of our society.

  • For Teachers

    Welcome to a school system where children are nurtured and teachers are mentored. We build upon our great diversity through the latest in technology and innovative teaching strategies. Previous awards and accolades serve as testimony to our dedication to the children and our commitment to the teaching profession. Under the No Child Left Behind legislation, we continue to improve our test scores and the quality of our professional staff so the Public Schools of Robeson County remains a system "on the rise". Our county is home to the University of North Carolina at Pembroke which awards both undergraduate and graduate degrees.

    We have a strong community college and a civic center which supports the performing arts. Our county is proud to be the only county in the United States with a tri-racial population, Native American Indian, African American, and Caucasian. We are located in the southeastern part of the state just ninety minutes from the beaches and just three hours from the Blue Ridge Mountains. Interstate 95 runs through the heart of our county allowing us to have a mix of rural and industrial development. Come to the warm, shady, tranquil landscape of Robeson County where family ties, community spirit, and true friendships are reflective of a bygone era. Join us as we prepare our children for life-long learning and happy, productive lives. Join us as we make our own lives meaningful and more fulfilled.
