  • 21st Century Classrooms engage students in technology-based learning

    Teachers in Brunswick County Schools teach students about people and places all over the world.

    Some recently discussed Yellowstone National Park, others learned about volcanic eruptions. Some studied the continents and others studied famous people.

    While classes cannot take field trips to these famous places or have the opportunity to invite famous people as guest speakers, the Internet and modern technology gives teachers an alternative method of teaching these foreign subjects, and gives students a chance to learn more about the world in which they live.

  • Attendance a 'treat' at Brunswick County Schools

    BOLIVIA—If students aren’t in school, they don’t learn. And if they don’t learn, they often fall behind.

    BCA Principal Sandra Robinson and Transition Academy Principal Faye Lloyd are determined to decrease the number of absences this year.
