Scotland County Schools’ Secondary Education comprises the formal education that occurs during adolescence (grades 6-12). The purpose of the department is to provide meaningful and engaging instruction that is relevant to student needs and to prepare students for college and/or to train students for a career. Secondary Education also serves as a link between the elementary and higher education by providing rigorous instructional programs for all students that are aligned to local, state and national standards. We seek to continue with instructional improvement and quality by developing administrative capacity through continuous training and orientation as a means to support teaching and learning.
