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.
