I'm so glad that I transferred to enloe sophomore year. This diverse GT school offers so much for any type of student. The school specifies in fields for both sides of the brain; the creative and academic. I personally came to school for the dance program. I am so lucky to attend a school with such a high-level, intelligent dance program that offers endless amounts of opportunities. Enloe is the one of the only magnets schools in Wake County that offers 5 levels of dance. I'm so grateful to be in level 5, which is, the college dance preparatory program that is also known as dance ensemble. The instructor provides opportunities for us to put on our resumes and skill progression. The assignments handed to us consist of ways of learning how to prepare for college dance and to get involved with the dance world; such as designing resumes and creating audition solos.

Enloe is one of the greatest schools in Wake County, and if not, in the state! I would definitely recommend this to any student that is willing to be hardworking and open to new and exciting challenges.
Review William G. Enloe High School
Amazing experience. There are so many people who are all different from you, and the diversity really teaches you more than the classes. This school has tons of opportunities for you to take advantage of, but nothing gets handed to you so you have to apply yourself in class and really do your best if you want to reap the benefits of all 20 or whatever of the AP classes Enloe offers. My first semester at an engineering college was actually easier than my high school junior year because I learned good work ethic. The teachers of the senior level AP classes in the east building are super cool humans and all the teachers really care about their subjects and inspiring young people. There's something about the atmosphere that really binds Enloe eagles together-probably bonding over the ridiculous senior pranks and terrible football team.
It's a very tough environment, a highly competitive school with peers that are going to push you and incredible teachers who are going to push you. Understand this, they will keep pushing you. A great deal of people here struggle with self worth and mental illness and within the AP program, there is a great deal of acedemically dishonesty and drug abuse. If you look at the ratings, a person takes an average of 4 AP classes a year, an extremely accurate reading. You'll be pushed to reach heights you didn't but even know existed, especially in IB. There is a high value on diversity, the arts, and the mathematical sciences, and excellence is the culture.
