For the latest information about Polk County Schools’ response to the COVID-19 virus, please visit: www.polkschools.org/coronavirus

Polk County Schools is a public school system in Western North Carolina serving approximately 2,300 students.  All Polk County schools have been recognized by state and national organizations for their student centered focus and academic excellence.  

Polk County Schools is proud to maintain small, community centered elementary schools with preschools for our youngest students.  The students then come together into Polk County Middle School where they participate in a variety of academic courses and extracurricular activities.  For the upper grades, students have a choice of the comprehensive curriculum and activities at Polk County High School or the smaller individualized learning at Polk County Early College.  

Relationships

Polk County’s teachers work diligently to develop meaningful relationships with their students. These strong relationships allow teachers to know, understand, and meet the needs of the students they serve.

Academic Success

Polk County Schools was recently ranked as the 2nd highest performing school district in North Carolina.  The Polk County Board of Education and hundreds of educators strive to provide high quality educational experiences for young people affording them the tools they need for future success.

Community

Polk County Schools receives substantial support from the Polk County community. Families, local government, businesses, and philanthropic organizations partner with our staff and schools to ensure students are provided opportunities to learn and grow in the classroom and beyond.

School Safety

Polk County Schools works hard to provide safe schools where our students are free to learn without concern for this safety.  Each student knows that the school staff are available at anytime for conversations about safety concerns at school.  We also understand that some students would feel more comfortable reporting safety concerns through a more anonymous mechanism.

Polk County Schools has a Tip Line available 24 hours a day for anyone who would like to report a safety concern in one of our schools.  Polk County also participates in the NC Say Something Anonymous Reporting System.  This program is managed by the Sandy Hook Foundation and provides students an opportunity to interact with a trained safety counselor 24 hours a day.  Reports made through the Say Something system are forwarded to both the school system and local law enforcement as deemed necessary.
