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.
