The Roanoke Rapids Graded School District is one of the three school districts in Halifax County, North Carolina. We're located right off Interstate 95 halfway between New York and Florida and just a short drive from Richmond, Virginia and Raleigh, NC.
Roanoke Rapids is a diverse community of nearly 15,000 residents. RRGSD has approximately 3000 students in six schools within the district.
Southern charm, rich history, spectacular natural setting and great dining are just a few of the delights in our community.
Our county seat Historic Halifax is the birthplace of the "Halifax Resolves", a document that gave rise to the creation of the Declaration of Independence.
The natural landscape of the county provides a wealth of recreational activities. From Lake Gaston, a 34 mile man-made lake, and Medoc Mountain State Park, a 2,300 acre natural wildlife preserve, to golfing and tennis, there is something for everyone to enjoy in our community.
Fun Fact: Our high school cross country team uses the Canal Trail each year for training and races. It's an amazingly beautiful community resource.
