Description

Welcome to Brassfield Elementary where our students, staff and parents work collaboratively to prepare learners for our rapidly changing world!

Brassfield was established as a traditional school on June 7, 1988 in Raleigh, North Carolina. In 2007, Brassfield transitioned to a Year Round School in order to accommodate its growing student population. Currently, our school is comprised of 760 students who are dispersed among four calendar schedules (or tracks).

Brassfield has consistently sustained its high student achievements and recognitions: School of Excellence, School of Distinction, Honor School of Excellence

With High Growth since the North Carolina recognition program began, the Brassfield staff is comprised of highly qualified teachers who continue to extend their learning to remain current in the evolving field of education. The instructional program at Brassfield immerses students in interactive learning opportunities using various technology tools to increase their participation in collaborative team work, problem solving and critical thinking.

State-of-the-art technology tools include a student-run Bearly TV Live Studio program where student and staff accomplishments are highlighted each morning, as well as Smartboards, data projectors, document cameras, netbooks, Flip and digital cameras in all K-5 classrooms.

Brassfield has an active, involved PTA and parent population. Our parents volunteer their time, gifts, talents and resources to assist the staff in providing a quality education for its children. Their contribution to our students� success is evident through their involvement and leadership in our school and PTA sponsored programs.

One visit to our Brassfield campus is all it takes for anyone to understand why our school is a great place for teaching and learning!

Unique Features

Important: Bus routes are subject to change based on actual student distribution, parent appeals, and other factors. The information here will be updated regularly, but updates may take several days to be reflected online. This route information last updated: 2:56 PM, Thu, Apr 3, 2014.

Stop times: Because routes change daily during the first weeks of school, specific stop times are not provided. Parents can anticipate a stop time based on the route start time, estimating 5 minutes between stops in suburban areas, and 5 to 10 minutes between stops in rural areas. The exact stop time will vary during the first weeks of school. Stop times may vary as much as 30 minutes as students settle into their routines. Students should be ready and waiting for the bus at least 10 minutes before the bus is expected to arrive.

Bus schedules: We urge parents to be patient as routes settle during the first few weeks of school. Bus routes may be extended by as much as 30 minutes as students become familiar with a new routine.

Questions?: Contact the Wakefield Transportation Office.
