For families considering a move to Wake Forest, questions about the area’s schools are always at the forefront of their considerations. What type of education will children in the area receive? Are the schools desirable? Will the children have positive social and academic influences as they grow up in this community? In Wake Forest, the answers to these questions are decidedly positive.
Award-Winning Schools with Excellent Academic Programs
Students, who live in Wake Forest, whether in Holding Village or another part of the community, have the privilege of attending the Wake County Public School System School District schools. With 27 high schools, this district is a large one, but it has received excellent accolades in recent years. In fact, U.S. News Best High Schools listed five of the schools as receiving gold, silver or bronze medals for academic excellence. Some of those include Green Hope High and William G. Enloe High, both among the top 20 in the state.
In addition, Wake Forest schools have held the number one spot in the nation for the number of Nationally Board Certified teachers, and they have held that spot for nine years in a row. The teachers of Wake Forest schools are highly trained, dedicated professionals who are passionate about what they do.
Year-Round Calendar Options
Wake Forest public schools offer the option for many students to attend year-round school. These schools break up the traditional summer break into shorter breaks throughout the school year, so students do not lose much of what they learned during the school year over the summer break. Instead, they get breaks between each nine-week grading period that span several weeks.
Strategic Plans for Wake Forest Public Schools
In spite of the district’s accomplishments, parents, teachers and administrators continue to press for greater success in the future. The stated vision of the district is: “All Wake County Public School System students will be prepared to reach their full potential and lead productive lives in a complex and changing world.” Through the strategic plan and the changes it brought to the district, Wake County Public School System plans to have an annual graduation rate of at least 95 percent, with those students ready for productive citizenship and college education, by 2020. The school district is making changes now to achieve that goal.
So if you are considering a home in Holding Village and have children, rest assured the local public schools will treat them well. Your kids will receive a quality education from a team of educators who truly care, so move forward with confidence!
