Message from the Principal

  • Dear Scotland Neck Elementary Leadership Academy families, students, staff and community members,

    I am happy to continue this year at Scotland Neck Elementary Leadership Academy. Our goal is for all students to reach academic greatness by Striving for Five! This greatness will be achieved when everyone works together to hold students to the highest level of expectations, empower all students to believe they will succeed, and to deliver effective instruction driven by data. Our goal as a county this year is to push all of our students to get five more questions correct than they did last year. This will lead to a year of growth for all of us!

    The mission that is upon us as a school community is going to be completed when learning that is completed at school is reinforced at home. I will ask the school community to do the following: Parents who have questions, ask them. Parents that want to help, help. Community members who want to support our students, support them. Remember that when we all work together we can all accomplish more.

    I hope to continue to see parents and caregivers visiting us at Scotland Neck Elementary Leadership Academy. Please call the school with any questions or concerns at (252) 826-4413. You may also contact me directly by email at

    Mr. Benjamin Eustice

  • Message from the Office of Superintendent Dr. Eric L. Cunningham

    Approximately thirteen years ago, one hundred and five students started a journey that would end with the familiar culminating experience, high school graduation. On Wednesday, May 22nd, a beautiful commencement ceremony for Northwest Halifax Collegiate and Tech Academy was filled with musical talent and special awards for graduates who demonstrated academic prowess. Students with substantive grade point averages earned high-ranking positions such as valedictorian and salutatorian; such accolades belong to the recipients forever.

    Graduation should be cherished as an event wherein individuals respect the journey endured by our scholars. It should be immune from destructive behaviors that will bring about marks of embarrassment in the minds of our youth.

    Mothers, Fathers, Grandparents and young children should be able to celebrate together without worrying about violence brought into the camp by unruly individuals. Instead of the joy that should accompany such a wonderful occasion, for the rest of their lives, these graduates will associate the ONLY high school graduation they will ever have, with the events that took place on Wednesday, May 22, 2019.

    The ceremony was beautiful and the message delivered was meant to inspire scholars to make wise decisions about the future, a future existing slightly beyond the exit doors of the venue. It is unfortunate that altercations erupted by people in attendance at the ceremony interrupted this special occasion and turned it into a mockery that was shameful to our families and community.

    We will rise above this ordeal and continue our quest to chart a new course. Halifax County Schools responded to the threat to ensure the safety of our students, staff and community. I would like to thank our first responders, the parents and staff who assisted in restoring order. Our collective efforts demonstrated that we are not going to tolerate this type of disrespect anymore. Thank you for not losing faith in Halifax County Schools. #HalifaxRise
