Next year, the Stoops family will send two boys to a Wake County elementary school. (This is fair warning, elementary teachers.) So, I checked out the Wake County Student Assignment Plan website to get a list of our options. My address was the only information required.
From Node 4750 in southern Wake County, we were given the choice of 13 magnet/application schools and the following elementary schools:
Willow Springs Elementary (Y)(RC)
Vance Elementary (Y)
Banks Road Elementary (Y)(RC)
Fuquay-Varina Elementary (T)
Ballentine Elementary (Y)
Lincoln Heights Elementary (T)
RC indicates that the school is a high-performing Regional Choice School. T and Y signify traditional and year-round calendars, respectively. There are codes for each of the magnet schools that describe their instructional or curricular focus. The website allows users to get a complete profile of the school by clicking on the name.
Overall, the website is pretty easy to use and understand.
