Human Resources

 
There are a lot of reasons to work with Cherokee County Schools!
 
Working in a school system always comes with challenges, but it can also be one of the most rewarding experiences you may have.  Being part of a team that helps students to learn and grow means that you're also building a future for the community.  
 
Cherokee County is a special place.  Nestled in the valley between the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Chattahoochee National Forest, and Nantahala National Forest, the area is rich with history and natural resources.  Cherokee County is roughly two hours from Atlanta, Chattanooga, Knoxville, and Asheville, giving residents easy access to airports, museums, and the amenities of larger cities.  The cost of living is low compared to many other WNC mountain communities.  It's also a great place to raise a family.  
 
Some of the local perks of working in Cherokee County include:
 
Close proximity to outdoor recreation and adventure
Appalachian Trail, Bartram Trail, lakes, rivers, hiking trails, whitewater rafting and kayaking, mountain biking and more
 
An active arts community
Valleytown Cultural Arts, Murphy Art Center, Cherokee County Artist Guild, Brasstown Morris Dancers, Community Theater programs, Brasstown Concert Association, and more
 
Discounted classes at John C. Campbell Folk School
Local residents eligible for 50% off tuition for classes on a space-available basis.
