• Inspire340's network of 14 schools:

    ... are a part of active communities.

    Winston-Salem and Forsyth County are places that are very supportive of the local school district. WS/FCS is supported by a number of business partners that provide invaluable funding and support to the schools. Inspire340 schools have also had great results with recruiting and maintaining volunteers. Many community organizations and business professionals give their time to prepare our future educators.

    ... value diverse culture.

    Inspire340 schools strive to create a diverse staff that will enrich the student experience. Inspire340 recognizes that teachers of all kinds all bring something to the table and it’s important to highlight what makes each educator unique.

    ... empower outstanding educators.

    Inspire340 schools have a consistent track record of producing award-winning educators. This year we have celebrated winners of the North Carolina Education Support Professional Award, Stanford University’s Holly Hock Scholarship, and most notably a Burroughs Wellcome Fund recipient. This is just the tip of the iceberg! Inspire340 schools encourage and support professional development. WS/FCS and Inspire340 want the best teachers in the state and will do what it takes to hire and continue professional development.
