Description

Located in northwestern Wake County, Leesville Road High School is among the top performing schools in North Carolina and has consistently been designated as a School of Excellence or School of Distinction according to the North Carolina Accountability Program.

Our mission statement, "to educate each student to be a responsible and productive citizen who can effectively manage future challenges" is evident through the developed tradition of Leesville Road High School taking PRIDE in our academics, PRIDE in our athletics, and PRIDE in our club/organization activities. By placing a priority on excellence and using the NC Standard Course of Study as a guiding tool, our dedicated staff strives to create lifelong, independent thinkers who will develop into productive, competitive and responsible global contributors.
While all high schools in Wake County offer an identical core instruction, Leesville Road High School also integrates a varied approach that will provide our students with additional educational opportunities.

The instructional day consists of a "four-by-four" block schedule with time for students to attend support centers during the school day. In addition to the core curriculum in English, math, science, and social studies; we offer over fifty different electives each school year including, but not limited to:

* Cultural Media Literacy
* SAT Preparation
* Forensic Science
* Holocaust and Genocide in World Studies
* Lessons of the Vietnam War/International Relations
* Aerospace
* Architectural Drafting
* Digital Media
* Pro Start (food service hospitality management)
* MSITA (Microsoft Office certification programs)

All of our courses integrate emerging research with the latest technology, therefore equipping students with post-secondary school readiness before college. Additionally, our arts offerings, both visual and performing, are recognized across the state and nation. While all classes are academically rigorous, there are Advanced Placement courses for students who are interested in an additional challenge. In addition to our academic program, we have outstanding athletic programs and over forty after school clubs and organizations to offer interested students.
