1-foam-finger.JPGARS is... Growth!

Did you know? ARS was #1 in the state of North Carolina among charter schools for student growth (and 14th among all public schools). Although this only counts for 20% of our NC School Report Card score, top educators agree that student growth is the most important factor in measuring a school's success.

Congratulations to our teachers and students for this amazing achievement!

PBiS Exemplar School


ARS is recognized as a PBiS Exemplar School in North Carolina!

Open Enrollment for the 2016-2017 school year began January 4th and ends March 4th, 2016. If the number of applications submitted within the Open Enrollment period of time exceeds the number of seats available for any grade level, a random lottery (on March 15th) will be held in order to determine who is offered a seat at the school. All applications submitted within the Open Enrollment period will have an equal opportunity for admission, regardless of whether they are submitted on the first day or the last day of Open Enrollment.

Applications submitted for the 2015-16 school year will not be valid, roll over, or be processed in the 2016-17 lottery. A new application must be submitted during the Open Enrollment period in order to be considered for a 2016-17 seat.
