The mission of Johnston County Public schools is to "foster a flame of learning within each child that will last a lifetime". In November of 2016, the county scored above the national average in every category in the district's five-year reaccreditation review process, AdvancED Adaptive System of School Improvement Support Tools (ASSIST).
There are 46 schools in the Johnston County school system. Children who live in Winston Pointe attend West Clayton Elementary, Clayton Middle School, and Clayton High School. Bus transportation is available with several bus stops throughout the neighborhood.
