The mission of the Randolph County School System is to maximize educational opportunities for every student by focusing on continuous improvement and having high expectations for students and staff, while preparing students for multiple options to be competitive in a diverse 21st century global society.
Gently rolling hills, river valleys and forest land characterize Randolph County's 790 square miles. It is the 11th largest county in North Carolina and has the 19th highest population in the state. The towns of Archdale, Asheboro, Franklinville, Liberty, Ramseur, Randleman, Seagrove, Staley and Trinity are located within Randolph County with Asheboro being the county seat. Asheboro is approximately 70 miles from Raleigh, the state capital, and from Charlotte, the state's largest city. Randolph County is a part of the Piedmont Triad region, a 12-county area whose central location puts it within 90 miles of the Blue Ridge Mountains to the west and within 200 miles of the Atlantic Ocean to the east.
The county sits in the middle of the Eastern Seaboard, within 500 miles of half of the nation's population and largest markets. The region is united by the Piedmont Triad International Airport, interstate highways, a score of colleges and universities and a rich cultural life. Although Randolph County is a part of the largest metropolitan area located entirely within North Carolina, it is still small-town living at its best.
The vision of the Randolph County School System is to maximize educational opportunities for every student, based on our beliefs that: All students can learn; All students will be taught in a safe and nurturing learning environment; All students deserve a teacher who is qualified and well-prepared; All students deserve access to instructional resources managed in a fiscally responsible manner; And all stakeholders share the responsibility and accountability for student learning.
