The Holding Village community is a part of the Wake County Public School System
, which is ranked as the fifth best school district
in North Carolina, according to Niche.com
. New homes in our neighborhood are zoned to attend Wake Forest Elementary, Middle and High Schools. Lately, the students at those schools have been part of some exciting projects and achievements!
Out on the field, Wake Forest High School
’s football team has won 45-straight games and three consecutive 4AA state championships. They finished the 2018 season with a 14-0 record. In December, the school was also honored as one of 100 Unified Champion Schools
by the Special Olympics. A Unified Champion School is one that has an inclusive atmosphere and “exudes a sense of collaboration, engagement and respect for all members of the student body and staff.” The school received a schoolwide parade to celebrate and a banner from ESPN and the Special Olympics. Go Cougars!
Last fall, Wake Forest Middle School
students gave back by collecting food for middle schoolers
and their families who were affected by Hurricane Florence. Additionally, the Wake Forest Elementary School
Chorus performed holiday favorites at the 2018 Lighting of Wake Forest to the delight of the crowd. The entire school system is also going greener this new year by ditching plastic foam trays
in favor of molded fiber ones made from 100 percent recycled material. The district is scrapping the trays because they’re made of petroleum, a non-sustainable and polluting material. We love that the schools are looking out for our kids’ health!
