Clyde Erwin Elementary School was dedicated January 11, 1954. Named for the late State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Dr. Clyde A. Erwin, it has always been our challenge to preserve his memory through "providing the type of school program he would have wished."
In keeping with this challenge, on February 12, 2008, the Board of Education voted unanimously to designate us as Onslow County Schools' first elementary magnet to be effective beginning the 2008-2009 school year. Over the past four years, we have implemented programs and practices and have conducted research needed in the hopes that we would receive this designation.
As we look to the future, our instructional focus will center around international studies and cultural arts. The integration of these areas throughout our curriculum as well as the integration of the characteristics of the International Baccalaureate Program, will allow us to foster the development of the whole child through encompassing social, physical, emotional and cultural needs in addition to their academic welfare.
Our staff stands ready and able meet the challenges of the 21st century. We welcome the opportunity to talk with you further about our instructional program and invite you to contact us for a personal visit.
