School Improvement

  • School Improvement Plan 

    School Improvement in Wake County Public Schools

    The purpose of school improvement is to improve achievement and outcomes for every student - intentionally working to eliminate performance predictability among subgroups - by collaboratively and continuously analyzing data and making decisions considering the unique needs of the learning community and the district's strategic plan.

    At Wendell Middle School, we are committed to building quality relationships with students, parents, and stakeholders. Our staff encourages academic, emotional, and personal growth.
