Living at the beautiful Crystal Coast also has its educational advantages! We are so fortunate to live in an area with a superb public school system! We are fortunate enough to have 16 public schools from Cedar Island to Cedar Point. We have three public high schools, West Carteret, East Carteret, & Croatan High Schools. These schools are situated to be convenient to all areas of the county. We have four middle schools, Beaufort Middle, Broad Creek Middle, Morehead City Middle, and Newport Middle. along with nine elementary schools.
