Twilight School - Community Learning Center at Pinckney

The Community Learning Center at Pinckney is providing Moore County Schools students a great opportunity in Twilight School.  Twilight School is a night school option for all MCS high school students.  There are currently 10 students that attend Twilight School and represent all three high schools in the district.  Twilight School provides students the opportunity to take initial credit or credit recovery for over 100 different courses.  Course curriculum is delivered through the Pearson product, GradPoint.  GradPoint is an easy-to-use tool for Blended Learning, Virtual Learning, Credit Recovery, and more.  This all-in-one platform provides engaging material developed by industry leaders.   (  
Certified, highly-qualified teachers help support the Twilight School students Monday-Thursday from 4:00-7:00pm.  Each night provides a different content area teacher that is available to provide intense one-on-one help with the students.  "I really like Twilight School because of the individual attention I get from the teachers" (Autumn H. - Union Pines).

On Monday nights, the English Language Arts teacher, Heather Beane, from North Moore High School, helps several students that are taking classes like ACT Prep, English I, II, and III.

On Tuesday nights, the Math teacher, Cindy Carlyle, from The Community Learning Center at Pinckney, helps students like Zoe C.  Zoe is taking Advanced Functions and Modeling.  Zoe began Twilight School two credits shy of graduating and will walk across the stage in June.  We are all very proud of her.  


On Wednesday nights, our Social Studies teacher, Rachel Davis, from The Community Learning Center at Pinckney, helps students with classes like American History I and Civics and Economics.  


On Thursday nights, our Science teacher, Rick Johnson, from Union Pines High School, helps students with courses like Biology, Earth Science, and Physical Science.  


The learning environment and climate at Twilight School is excellent and the students participating really enjoy the atmosphere.  "I like the cubicles for working because they help keep me concentrated on my work"  (Ivan R. - North Moore).

One of the biggest advantages students have at Twilight School is access to two master teachers each and every night they attend.  This student-teacher ratio fosters greater learning and helps develop working relationships with teachers in a different classroom environment.
