Neuse Charter School Exceeds Academic Growth Expectations

SMITHFIELD – The 2020-2021 school year was like none other, as the pandemic significantly impacted student learning in the classroom. However, Neuse Charter School found a way to meet and/or exceed student growth per the North Carolina Department of Instruction’s SAS EVAAS data.

Neuse Charter School students exceeded expected growth on the end-of-grade Math assessment and met expected growth on the end-of-grade Reading assessment for the 2020-2021 academic year.

Since the early days of the pandemic, Neuse Charter continued to emphasize student learning in the classroom, even when faced with new challenges. With continued engagement from parents, staff, and students, Neuse found a way to continue face-to-face learning throughout the school year.

“Our students deserve our best every day, and this remarkable growth speaks to the efforts of our staff to provide rigorous and meaningful instruction. Our data-driven approach to education and laser focus on every child, every day allows Neuse to continue raising the bar in K-12 education” said Dr. Melissa Blackwell, Superintendent.

Neuse Charter School is currently accepting applications for the 2022-2023 academic year until noon on March 16th. To apply and for more information about Neuse Charter School and its programs, please visit


  1. This socialists/communist democrat plan is working out far better than they could have even imagine. The angry parents that are removing thier kids out of the Johnston County Public Schools because of the CRT brain washing and the forced masking thought by doing that it would wake up the school board are so wrong. The Johnston County School Board is setting back and laughing as they work with the Biden/Harris Administration in bringing all those night time military flights of illegal border crossing children to replace the kids that have transferred to the Neuse Charter Schools. Now these Johnston County Parents still have to pay the property taxes and then pay up again for the Neuse Charter School. Don’t you Johnston County Tax payers and Parents just love the priorities of our Johnston County School Board?
