Raleigh Charter High School Reviews

Raleigh Charter provides an intense, competitive academic environment, to the point of toxicity. If you are not an above average student I would not recommend this school. Teachers have really high expectations of their students. Expect an hour of homework on average for each class each day, with the exception of electives being ~30 minutes of homework (about 5 hours of homework per day). Teachers are not lenient on grading, but they do care for their students. There are not very many clubs, as the school has very little money for them. Participation in clubs is low due to the amount of homework given to students. Still, in a purely academic sense, this is a good school that will prepare you for college.

Raleigh Charter was amazing! Small and personal relationships with teachers. Teachers who are knowledgable and passionate--most are doctors. A school setting that doesn't restrict students but encourages them to be themselves and embrace every part of them. Feels like a small community where everyone knows everyone and gets together. Incredible academics. Definitely prepares you for college.
very high academics. They have great teachers that are supportive and helpful. Many club and activities you can choose from, and all great and fun. College Readiness is defiantly one of their top priorities! I never worry about Raleigh Charter being unsafe. Yes there is defiantly diversity, and everyone does treat everyone equal. The sports are great. We have amazing food! The Resources at Raleigh charter are great. Facilities are always good never any problems. There is so much Parental involvement in this school which is great, also because parents never feel left out as much either.
