School History:

North Topsail Elementary School was constructed in 1998. At the time, it was one of two elementary schools in Hampstead, North Carolina. In addition, it is been the only Title 1 school in Hampstead. In 2009, due to overcrowding at North Topsail Elementary School and South Topsail Elementary , Topsail Elementary was re-opened as an elementary school. Currently, North Topsail Elementary has almost 700 students Pre-K-5th. North also hosts several Exceptional Children’s self-contained classrooms including Pre-K, K-2 and 3-5 sustained support classes. Student success at NTES has always been our focus. For the past eight years NTES has been the recipient of a variety of accolades including being named a school of distinction, a school with high growth and most recently a “B” school.
