Onslow County Schools

Driver's Education

With the go-ahead on funding from the General Assembly, staff is working out the details to move forward with the Driver's Education program. Due to the interruption in services caused by the uncertainty of funding, we currently have a backlog of students in need of the program. We are projecting that enrollment will be opened to our high schoolers in the coming weeks with students 15 years of age or older having first priority.

Chinese Principals visit Onslow County Schools

Through a partnership with Hanban/Confucius Institute Headquarters in Beijing, China and the Center for International Understanding based out of North Carolina, the Onslow County School System recently hosted a group of approximately 50 Chinese principals. The group visited the following schools who have Chinese teachers on staff: Carolina Forest International Elementary, Dixon Elementary, Dixon Middle, Dixon High, Hunters Creek Middle, and White Oak High. Visiting principals learned about North Carolina schools, toured classrooms, and exchanged gifts with their American counterparts.
