EDUCATION IN CHATHAM COUNTY
According to Newsweek and US News & World Report’s Best High Schools lists, Chatham County is already home to some of the top schools in the country. To maintain these high educational standards, Chatham Park is working closely with the Chatham County School Board to develop new public schools as the community grows.
Based on planned school capacities, two elementary schools, plus additional middle and high schools will likely be needed in the North Village. Students will be able to take sidewalks, trails, or bike paths to and from school.
Chatham County Schools are recognized as some of the best in the country. For the fourth consecutive year, students from Northwood High School (Pittsboro, NC) have out-performed both the State and the Nation on the SAT. Northwood was also ranked in the top 9% of ‘America’s Most Challenging High Schools’ – The Washington Post, while Woods Charter School ranked the 3rd best high school in NC and 94th best high school in the country – U.S. News & World Report.
In Chatham County, the graduation rate (85%) is higher than the state average, SAT scores are consistently improving, and the district performance composite for End-of-course/End-of-grade test scores is higher than the state average. All 17 of the district’s schools met or exceeded growth expectations in the 2013-2014 school year.
Thales Academy, a private school with six campuses in North Carolina, plans to open a new location in the North Village; just off Thompson Street next to the first Chatham Park neighborhoods. Thales Academy believes in providing students with an affordable, quality education that prepares them for college and beyond. Classes start in the fall of 2020 for students in grades K-12. Enrollment is not limited to Chatham Park residents, students from Pittsboro and Chatham County will also attend.
