There is nothing more important than knowing your new home will be part of a vibrant and safe community. This is especially true if your family contains school aged children. WCPSS has become the largest school systems in the state and one of the largest in the nation. NC students scored 30 points higher than the national average on the 2017 SAT. WCPSS bucks a national trend by having a high rate of student participation in the SAT along with high performance. The Wake County Public School System is known nationally for the choices provided in its magnet school program. More than thirty magnet schools provide enhanced opportunities for students while making the best use of existing facilities. Magnet programs are free of charge and no testing or portfolio is required. In addition to magnet choices, families can also apply to attend a school with an alternative, year-round calendar depending on their base school assignment. Wake County Public School System's website, www.wcpss.net, is a wealth of information providing schedules, articles, school scores, locations, forms, and much more.
