every child. every day.


Academics within the Mooresville Graded School District are at the core of student performance and exist to establish MGSD students as globally innovative leaders by fostering a culture that cultivates critical thinking, communication, collaboration, creativity, rigor, relevance and social relationships.  District level administrators facilitate the overall plans for and implementation of MGSD's academic curriculum and instruction; site administrators lead the implementation of curriculum and instruction and are key stakeholders in all decision-making regarding it.  All district schools’ curriculum is aligned to the North Carolina Standard Course of Study, and enhanced via a digital format and digital resources. 

Academics within MGSD are based on the core values articulated within the district strategic plan:

  • Authentic Relationships - We believe in an environment that is welcoming to all, creating a sense of community.  We believe in an inclusive environment where all voices are valued and all people know they belong.
  • Empowerment - We believe students, families, and staff should have a voice in the growth and development of the school system. We believe in fostering a culture of innovation in an effort to continuously improve. 
  • Equity - We believe there is inherent worth in all people. We believe in ensuring all staff, students, and families have the opportunity and access necessary for a successful outcome.
  • Integrity - We believe in honesty and transparency in our work as a district.  We believe a culture of trust between staff, students, families, and the community is the backbone of a successful school system. 
  • Safety -  We believe in creating an environment where everyone feels safe and supported.  We believe safety includes physical safety, as well as mental health and well-being.
