    Innovative High School Program Information for 8th Grade Students

    Johnston County Public Schools offers several high school options for students other than the traditional high school setting. These high schools/programs include smaller class sizes and support for students who are interested in pursuing specific careers or desire more rigorous curriculum/college level classes. Several of these opportunities are in collaboration with Johnston Community College, one involves a partnership with the University of Mount Olive, and one program involves a partnership with Johnston Community College and NC State.  We are proud to offer these unique settings to allow students to pursue their goals during high school.
