Yes, you read that correctly ... we said, "Play!"
We became the nation's first and only Center for Play and Ingenuity Magnet Elementary School in 2016-17. This doesn't mean students just "playing around." Instead, it means finding new ways to meaningfully engage students in their learning while doing things that they enjoy and that interest them. Learn more about Play and Ingenuity.

Magnet Schools of America's National Merit Awards program honors the top magnet schools in the United States. These awards recognize magnet schools that demonstrate commitment to high academic standards, curriculum innovation, successful desegregation and diversity efforts, and consistent delivery of high quality educational services to all stakeholders.
The first is the 8-week GAPS program starting Feb. 29. The second is an online GIS mapmaking competition for students in grades 4-12.
Overall, only about 1% of Wake County Public School System students will be impacted in each of the two years of this plan.
