Mr. Carl Cruthis

Welcome to Northwoods Park Middle School, I am looking forward to a Fin-tastic great year in Dolphin country!  I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro with a Bachelor's degree in Music Education in 2004 and taught middle school band for eight years.  During my time with Guilford County Schools I completed my Master's Degree in Educational Leadership at High Point University and served as the administrator for the Guilford County Schools Summer Arts Institute for three years.  In the summer of 2018 I joined East Carolina University's Project i4 grant to earn my Micro-Credintial in Academic Discourse and Equitable Instruction, I was then accepted into the Project i4 Ed.D. cohort and will graduate in December of 2023.  In 2018-2019 I was honored as the OCS Tech Savvy Administrator and in October 2019 I was named the Assistant Principal of the Year for OCS and the North Carolina Secondary Assistant Principal of the Year. I am humbled and honored to be serving the Onslow County Community this year as principal here at The Park.
