Q. What is the best combo of public schools in the Greater Wilmington area? (K-12) I have heard that the south Topsail area ranks the highest in the tri-county area but can find ZERO info to back that claim. In all seriousness it sounds like New Hanover county has a fairly poor rating overall for public schools but with the recent news of new charter schools opening up I am curious how the current schools stack up against one another.
A. MyReporter will not risk countering school spirit by attempting to say which schools are the “best” in Brunswick, New Hanover and Pender counties.
But the best site to find the information requested would be the North Carolina Schools report cards site found at: http://www.ncschoolreportcard.org/src/
The state uses a number of data sets to evaluate how schools are performing. The StarNews frequently reports those numbers.
The most recent data set the StarNews reported on included the ABCs of Public Education and Annual Measurable Objectives.
Click here to read that story.
At the end of the story, you’ll find a link to the Annual Measurable Objectives table. Simply select a school system and the type of date you want.
