The Tiller School is a public K-5 charter school established by a group of parents and teachers in 1993 to provide a quality, enriched education for the children of Carteret County.
The Tiller School is dedicated to establishing an educational setting where self-motivated, lifelong learners develop. We strive to do this in an environment that provides the security for students to learn without fear of failure and where dignity, self-discipline and responsibility are valued. Our program emphasizes a low student to teacher ratio ; a challenging academic program including communication skills, the arts and technology. Tiller School uses the Responsive Classroom approach, a social curriculum emphasizing the values of caring, respect, trustworthiness, fairness and citizenship. – less
