MESSAGE TO STUDENTS AND PARENTS
Duplin County High Schools offer a comprehensive and flexible curriculum in an effort to meet the needs of all students. All Duplin County High Schools offer a strong academic program that will meet the college entrance requirements at any college or university in the nation. A technical preparation program is offered to prepare for entry-level technical careers and for more specialized education at community and technical colleges. Special programs are offered for properly-identified exceptional children in the areas of gifted/talented, learning disabled, mentally handicapped, multiple handicapped, hearing impaired, visually impaired, speech impaired, and homebound. Remedial programs are offered for students who do not have proficient math and language arts skills.
Obviously, with the wide variety of course offerings, a great deal of forethought and planning is necessary to achieve maximum benefit. Counselors and teachers at the school assist students in preparing schedules that will meet their future needs. Parents and students are encouraged to consult the school counselors concerning any questions they have about program planning.
This curriculum guide information has been prepared to assist parents and students in selecting the appropriate high school programs. Please read this information carefully and become thoroughly familiar with all of the courses offered. The courses selected will vitally affect career choices after high school.
