Welcome to the East Wake High School Media Center!
East Wake High School (formerly known as Vaiden Whitley High School) is located in Wendell, NC. The school was subdivided into four separate smaller schools, but was unified into one large high school starting in the 2015-2016 school year.
High school students moved to the brand-new Vaiden Whitley High School, which is located on the East Wake High School campus on Rolesville Rd., in 1966. From 1965 until 1976, high school students from the Knightdale attendance area attended Vaiden Whitley High School along with high school students from Wendell. In 1977, another new high school opened adjacent to Vaiden Whitley High School, named East Wake High School.
East Wake is home to 1,382 Warriors and growing! Since 2020, we have become a 1-to-1 school with Chromebook carts in each classroom. Most recently, we have incorporated Promethean panels into each of our classrooms, making teaching more interactive.
We aim to make our media center a beautiful and welcoming safe space where students can focus, relax, and expand their knowledge.
The East Wake High School Media Center's mission is to empower students and staff to become effective and ethical users of information and ideas. The goal of the media program is to prepare our users to be lifelong learners able to identify their information needs, access, search, and evaluate relevant information, solve problems, make decisions, and communicate new knowledge and ideas in a variety of formats.
