Phone 907-0200
Fax 907-1404
Hours:
Monday – Friday 0800-1600

Overview: The Fort Bragg School System is composed of one primary schools (pre-K – 1st grades), one intermediate school (2nd – 5th grades), four elementary schools (pre-K – 5th grades), two middle schools (6th-8th grades). Students in grades nine through twelve attend high schools in Cumberland or Harnett Counties. (See below for Cumberland County Schools) Each school under the direction of Fort Bragg School system is fully accredited by ADvancED.

Special Education: One of the most unique aspects of Fort Bragg Schools is the work done with special needs children. The Special Education Program offers a full continuum of services to include consultation, inclusion, resource rooms, self-contained classes, and homebound instruction. Eligible students receive services from Speech/Language Pathologists, Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists and Psychologists. An extended school year is available to students who demonstrate significant regression and recoupment issues.

Fort Bragg School Board: Being a school board member is a serious responsibility but one that offers significant rewards – the primary reward being the opportunity to actively participate in the process of educating our children. However, unlike the school boards in the Local Education Authority (LEA), DDESS school boards act purely in an advisory capacity, providing input to the Superintendent and administrators in the areas of fiscal, personnel and educational policies, procedures and programs. The DDESS school district superintendent makes final decisions on matters affecting the school district.

Volunteers provide services and are also offered opportunity to learn first-hand about excellent programs in the schools. For more information about volunteering contact a school principal nearest you.
