Halifax County Schools


The Halifax County Schools district in North Carolina consists of 11 schools, including 6 elementary schools, 2 middle schools, and 3 high schools. The district as a whole is ranked 222 out of 243 school districts in the state and is rated 0 stars out of 5 by SchoolDigger, indicating significant room for improvement.

Within the district, a few schools stand out. Halifax County Early College High is the highest-performing school, ranking 155 out of 626 high schools in North Carolina and earning a 4-star rating from SchoolDigger. This school has a diverse student population, with a high percentage of African American and Native American students. Another standout is Inborden Elementary S.T.E.A.M. Academy, which has the lowest student-teacher ratio among the elementary schools and some of the highest test scores, outperforming the district and state averages in mathematics.

However, the majority of schools in the district struggle to meet state proficiency standards, particularly in mathematics and reading. The high rates of free and reduced-price lunch eligibility across the district suggest that poverty may be a significant factor contributing to the low academic performance. The district would benefit from targeted interventions and support to address these disparities and improve student outcomes for all schools.
