Wake County Schools Reviews
Overall, a good school district. Good teachers who cared for students! One thing I would suggest is to possibly split the district into two. I say this because Wake County Public schools is a huge district. On days where it snows, the school district would cancel school because of the snow. Sometimes the snow is cleared up in your area of the district but not in others; so the district would cancel for all schools. If the district was smaller, it would cut down unnecessary snow days
Ive had a good experience! The diversity in my school is especially impressive and I do feel academically challeneged. However I feel like the academic fexibilty isnt as great. When you enroll in a class, your focused on basically a straight line and you have very little time to do other related things. Such as in my art class, it was strictly in class projects, homework projects, and art history. You dont really have time to share techniques.
Wake County Public School System is a great county that prepares students for college readiness, as well as our future career. Resources come at an abundance in Wake County Schools, providing a diverse amount of clubs that represent culture, nationality, personality, academics, and interest. My personal experience in this school system has been great as I feel more than prepared for college and its challenges. I feel that everyone has an opportunity to get the right exposure through their classes, as well as through clubs and community service. Being a county that is heavily involved in its community helps to encourage all students to develop a caring, loving, and giving traits to help those in and outside of the community.
