Kannapolis City Schools


Kannapolis City Schools


We are a small school system (4,828 students) in a dynamic part of North Carolina. We are only 30 minutes from Charlotte, which is host to Lowe's Motor Speedway, NFL Carolina Panthers, NBA Bobcats, and other minor league baseball and hockey teams. Kannapolis is also one hour from Greensboro; two hours from the mountains; and four hours from the beach. Our town is a great place to raise a family and is convenient to all the amenities that appeal to young and old alike. North Carolina is known as the "Variety Vacationland," and Kannapolis is in the heart of it all! We are proud of our new teacher induction program and our great mentors, who are specially trained to help our novice teachers. We have a tuition reimbursement program for certified educators working on a higher degree. Public school teachers from out of state qualify immediately for in-state tuition rates at our excellent state university system--UNC-Charlotte is only 20 minutes away. Year-by-year cancellation of some college loans is a possibility when you teach for Kannapolis City Schools. Our local teacher supplements are very competitive. Take your PRAXIS tests early and we will pay for them! Our school system is a great place to begin or continue your teaching career.
