The number of people relocating to the Wake County area is big and still growing fast. Nearly every day, people ask “How are the schools?”, “Which are the better schools?”, “Are they building more schools?”, etc. Here’s our list of answers and resources.

We decided to put together a list of links to help you learn more about our schools in Wake County, which includes popular cities like Apex, Cary, Holly Springs, Fuquay-Varina, Raleigh, Wake Forest, Knightdale, Wendell, and Zebulon.

First, start at the Wake County Public Schools System main website.

Which schools you will be assigned to, based upon your address.
