Welcome to Shallotte Middle School - home of the Pirates!


    Shallotte Middle School is located in the small town of Shallotte, North Carolina, with a population of about 4,100. Our school is 33 miles from Wilmington and 38 miles from Myrtle Beach, but only about 10 minutes from our beautiful beaches!


    Shallotte Middle was built in 1972, replacing the old Shallotte High School. Our highly qualified staff serves approximately 650 6-8th graders. In addition to regular academic classes, we offer art, PE, band, chorus, CTE courses and the only handbell program in Brunswick County Schools. Students in good academic and behavioral standing can participate in a variety of in-school and after school clubs and sports.



    Pirate students are expected to show Pirate Pride at all times; working to capacity, treating each other and our school building and campus with respect, and engaging in learning with both their hearts and minds. Our Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) program supports students through “the teaching of proactive strategies for defining, teaching and supporting appropriate student behaviors to create positive school environments.” We want our students to be safe and happy each and every day at school.


    Please visit our webpage and Facebook page often. We keep them updated with the latest activities and information. Also, I send out a Sunday night message to remind you of upcoming events. If you have time, come volunteer at school. We want our families to become part of our school family as we work together to educate our children.


    Again, on behalf of the Pirate staff, welcome to Shallotte Middle - home of Pirate Pride!
