At Johnston County's first charter school, children come first. Neuse Charter School in Selma challenges students to apply higher level thinking skills to make decisions and solve problems within a global society.
NCS provides a curriculum aligned with the North Carolina Standard Course of Study. All students are given instruction in foreign language. Teachers focus on inquiry-based learning techniques to enhance students' performance. The well respected and performance-proven Paideia teaching model is used, featuring less time in didactic instruction and more time in coached projects and Socratic questioning in a seminar setting.
Officially opened on August 27, 2007, the school offers an international studies focus, including foreign language as early as kindergarten.
Any child who is a legal resident of North Carolina and has not been expelled from another school, is eligible to attend this free public school.
