Education in Greater Wilmington

School Information

Curious to know how one Wilmington area school rates against another? There are a few websites we recommend checking out.

Happy StudentThe first is the NC School Report Cards website from the State Board of Education. It displays the latest state report cards by county and school. These will give you an overview on average class size, school size, number of teachers, their level of experience, results of end-of-year tests, and how they each compare to other schools in the district and state. This site is very good if you're looking for straight facts.

The second is Great Schools, a non-profit website that shows test scores, school contact information, and enrollment information. It also gives insight to programs and culture, and allows people to rate each school. There are other websites like Great Schools out there (School Digger, School Family, Public School Review), but this one has the most reviews.

For more detailed information about important dates, school requirements, and special needs, we recommend contacting the school district directly:

New Hanover County Schools
(910) 763-5431
6410 Carolina Beach Road
Wilmington, NC 28412

Brunswick County Schools
(910) 253-2900
35 Referendum Drive
Bolivia, NC 28422

Pender County Schools
(910) 259-0133
925 Penderlea Hwy
Burgaw, NC 28425


Not sure which school your child will be attending? If you've purchased a home recently or are house hunting, the schools should be listed in the property information on the MLS. However, if you're looking for a home to rent you have a few different options. New Hanover County has a searchable map and Brunswick County has school attendance maps. If you're located in or will be located in Pender County, you'll have to call Pender County Schools. Of course, we encourage you to verify with each school district before you make any long term investment.
