Description

Wakefield High School is situated on a 110 acre tract in Northern Wake County near the town of Wake Forest. Just north of Raleigh, the capital of North Carolina, the main campus is centrally located in the Wakefield Community. The high school is adjacent to Wakefield Elementary and Middle Schools and a YMCA close to campus enhances its reputation as a community-based school. Wakefield is a comprehensive public secondary school that offers a traditional curriculum based on the North Carolina Standard Course of Study. A 9th grade center approximately 3 miles from the main campus opened in the fall of 07 to house incoming freshman. There are approximately 150 faculty members at Wakefield, of which, 35 are recognized as national board certified teachers. There is a support staff of over 50 including technical, clerical, and administrative assistants as well as child nutrition, custodial and maintenance personnel.

All courses are offered on a 4 x 4 block schedule. In addition to advanced placement and honors classes, Wakefield offers an extensive program of vocational, technical, and career development courses. An award winning arts program provides instruction in theater, dance, visual art, and vocal and instrumental music. A special programs course of study is offered for exceptional students who meet state guidelines. SMART Lunch provides 55 minutes of time and the opportunity during the school day for students to get the extra help they may need to be successful academically. Students and staff are available during SMART Lunch to collaborate, remediate, and interact. Wakefield also cooperates with local universities and community colleges to provide dual enrollment opportunities for students who take courses not offered on the high school campus.

A 4-AA school governed by the NC Athletic Association, Wakefield has achieved recognition in many sports. Outstanding recognition noted recently for the Wolverines include state titles in boys' basketball and girls' track. Wakefield competes in football, basketball, baseball, softball, soccer, track, cross country, lacrosse, golf, swimming, volleyball, wrestling, tennis, and gymnastics. Believing that extra-curricular activities are an essential part of high school life, Wakefield is committed to service and leadership through clubs and other organizations. Student life is thriving and there are numerous opportunities for involvement including participation in student government, academic honor societies, fine arts clubs, service and cultural groups, business and civic organizations, and athletics. Parents are involved and the PTSA and booster organizations support the teachers and programs at the school. Wakefield's JUST THINK FIRST Program has achieved state and national recognition for its work in addressing topics that affect teens in society today including drugs, sex, alcohol, bullying, harassment, and negative peer pressure.












Curriculum: Traditional

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: 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.
