Lead Mine Elementary is a small family centered school on a beautiful wooded lot in North Raleigh. It has maintained a tradition of excellence and stability since its doors opened in 1990. The school has been a model for showing that diversity and high achievement are compatible. Any child who walks through the door is going to find a dedicated, committed staff to insure that he or she will learn. Our tradition of high performance for all students has earned us the distinction of being named as a Regional Choice school in the new district assignment plan. We had to be one of the top schools in the district in a number of different categories to be so honored.
Academic excellence is just one of the things for which we are known. When people talk about Lead Mine you hear the same words coming up time and again: family oriented, friendly, calm, welcoming, fun, caring. Our small size of about 500 students gives us the opportunity to know our students and parents on a personal level. We could not do what we do without tremendous parent support. Students who come to Lead Mine know they going to have to meet high expectations in an atmosphere where staff members genuinely care about them as people and learners. They will have access to the latest technology to help them acquire the skills they will need to be successful in a global society. We build the foundation they need to be successful in their next stage of life.
Traditional curriculum schools offer students high quality instruction, opportunities for advanced studies, creative exploration and extra-curricular activities in a nurturing educational setting. Some of the highest-performing schools in Wake County are traditional curriculum schools.
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: 9:50 AM, Tue, Oct 28, 2014.
Stop times: Parents can anticipate a stop time based on the route start time, estimating 3 minutes between stops for neighborhood routes and 10 minutes for express routes. The exact stop time will vary during the first weeks of school. 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. With students becoming familiar with this new routine, bus routes may take more time.
Faded Stops: Stops in faded text are on the route, but do not pick up or drop off students attending this school.
Questions?: Contact Transportation.
Can't find your bus stop?: If you cannot find your child's bus stop, please fill out our customer support form to report a missing bus stop.
