I would suggest that anyone interested in information about Bertie County Schools check the Bertie County High School Principals Report found in the NC Archives in Raleigh. This is a yearly report of graduating students with names and class year starting in c1926 until 1964 until the county open Central Bertie County High School. In 1924 NC passed legislation stating that students who graduated from non-accredited institutions could not enroll in any of the state owned colleges or universities. Due to pressure from parents the school board change the school year to 160 days (8 Months) and from nine to eleven grades with eight to eleven designated as high school. A few years pry to 1926 the school year was only four months starting in late November through March. This schedule was to accommodate the planting, growing and harvest of farm products.

In 1943 the school year was increased to 180 days or nine months. Grade one through twelve was also added that year. Today we have Kindergarten through grade twelve in all schools.
