School Improvement

Each year our school sets a strategic plan for success with many factors.  This plan is called our School Improvement Plan (SIP).  We invite you to learn more about our strategic plan by logging into where North Carolina Public Schools manage their SIPs. 

Each of you are stakeholders in our school and your engagement and voice are critical to the success of the goals we have set.  As stakeholders, you are welcome to use the guest login to take a look.  

Our stakeholders can have access using the guest login found below and provide feedback by emailing our school's principal, Anna Austin @

You can access the SIT minutes through NC Star.
