Public Schools of Robeson County
An enrollment of approximately 24,000 students makes the Public Schools of Robeson County one of the largest school systems in the state. The some 2,700 principals, teachers and behind-the-scenes personnel provide the young people in our 44 schools an effective education. They also make us one of the largest employers in Robeson County. The ability to collaborate with the University of North Carolina at Pembroke and Robeson Community College gives us access to programs and facilities that have the potential of adding to what we already offer our students.
Additionally, people from these institutions as well as employees of the business and industrial community are active in helping our students make career decisions. Much of that help comes in the form of mentoring and tutoring. Volunteers, likewise, make a positive impact on our schools and their students. Their efforts save the school system untold thousands of dollars annually. Regardless of where our graduates go, though, it is our ultimate to provide our students with the knowledge, skills, and attitude that will ensure each one is a strong student, a confident person, a responsible citizen, and a contributing member of our society. When all of us work together, we can make this happen.

Core values describe an organization’s culture and character and serve as the foundation for the way individuals in an organization interact with each other and with people outside of the organization. The Department of Veterans Affairs Core Values and Characteristics apply across the entire VA enterprise.
