Pender County School System Update

Dr. Steven Hill, Superintendent of Pender County Schools, updated the club on the status of Pender County Schools and some of the challenges the school system faces with burgeoning enrollments.

Dr. Smith commented

  • The district is comprised of 18 schools serving approximately 9,300 students in grades Pre-K through 12 and an Early College High School.
  • Our students continually exceed local and state performance on North Carolina End of Grade and End of Course tests.
  • Pender County Schools is the largest employer in Pender County with more than 1,200 staff members.
  • Each school day more than 1,200 employees work to provide an environment that capitalizes on students’ natural curiosity, nurtures their desire to learn, and respects their individual learning style. Our goal is to help children become productive members of society.
