"There is no question in my mind that Carteret County Public Schools is home to some of the best schools in the world,” said CCPS Superintendent, Dr. Rob Jackson. “At every level, we see students achieving success academically, artistically, and athletically. Their success is a reflection of the amazing teachers and staff members who strive every day to help students achieve their dreams. It is also a reflection of the tremendous support the school system receives from parents, business partners, and the community. We appreciate this recognition as we have been, we are, and we will remain #CarteretStrong!"
The 2022 results for high schools have not been released. In 2021, Croatan, East Carteret, and West Carteret High Schools were recognized and earned a “Best High School Badge.” (Bridges, Carteret Preschool Center, MaST, and Smyrna Elementary were not a part of the rankings.)
