Manteo High School is one of three high schools located in Dare County, North Carolina. Manteo was named after Chief Manteo who assisted the Roanoke Colony, which became known later as the Lost Colony. Renovations were completed on the school in 2007.


Manteo's sports teams play under the name "Redskins." The school has 21 athletic teams (including seven varsity teams and five junior varsity teams) that compete with other 1-A schools in the eastern part of North Carolina and across the state. They sometimes compete with First Flight High School which is in the same district.
