The original Green Hope School, less than a mile down the road from the present Green Hope High School, was a small rural school established in 1927. The school was home to 200 students in grades one through twelve, and was the first accredited rural high school in Wake County. The school unfortunately burned in 1963 and was not rebuilt.

Many years passed, and as the population exploded in Wake County a new and much larger Green Hope opened in August 1999. Its name was the result of lobbying by Green Hope School alumni who still lived in the area. The school colors (burgundy and green) are the same as those of the former school, and our graduates receive diplomas are a replica of the ones received by the original graduates.

The "new" Green Hope High School has a current enrollment of over 2000 students. Green Hope High School has consistently garnered many distinctions such as being named a School of Excellence, an Honor School of Excellence, as well as being recognized for its outstanding graduation rates. Additionally, Green Hope has been recognized by the NC High School Athletic Association as having the overall best athletic program in the state for class AAAA schools.

Green Hope High School is a great place to be.
