Principal's Corner

Dear Students and Parents,

Welcome to North Whiteville Academy! I am so excited about the new school year.

The NWA staff is dedicated to educating the "whole child". We understand in order to make students successful in the classroom; we must first recognize and meet their emotional, social and physical needs through a caring and supportive environment. We encourage students to take ownership in their learning and challenge themselves to reach their maximum potential. Support services are put into place to assist students obtain a high school diploma and transition into the community college setting or workforce.

We believe it takes the entire community: students, parents, faculty and outside agencies working together to produce life-long learners and successful problem solvers in the 21st century. Therefore, we encourage our parents to play a positive role in the educational process. When positive partnerships are formed between the home and school, our students are successful. This TEAM approach defines our motto: Together Everyone Achieves More.

Please feel free to stop by or call me with your comments or concerns. I welcome the opportunity to work with you.

Susan M. Smith
