SRMHS School Front
  • School Profile

    Founded in 1997, Southeast Raleigh Magnet High School (SRMHS) is one of 26 high schools within the Wake County Public School System (WCPSS), four being magnet schools. SRMHS is a comprehensive magnet with the theme University Connections: School of Design, Arts & Engineering. The WCPSS is recognized as one of the best school systems statewide and nationally.
    The student body consists of seventy percent base students (assigned) and thirty percent magnet students (application.)  The school's enrollment is approximately 1600 students in grades 9-12 and a faculty of 143 professionals. 
    The school is on a modified calendar track. The school year begins in July and is composed of two 90 day semesters with four 9 week grading periods. There are two 2 week breaks in between each semester and a 7-week summer break at the end of the school year. 
    The school day consists of four 90 minute blocks. Homerooms are built into student's second periods with an additional ten minutes. 
    As freshmen, students are introduced to the four pathways through University Connections, an exploratory course for all ninth-grade students. Upon completion of University Connections, students declare their pathway of either Design, Arts, Engineering, or Humanities. All though students choose a pathway, they are still allowed to take courses outside of the pathway chosen. 
    All students have access to our programs that include 3 Career PLTW Academies (NAF Engineering, Biomedical, and Information Technology& Cybersecurity), Visual & Digital Arts, Performing Arts and Athletics.

    SRMHS Theme

    SRMHS was awarded a multi-million dollar federal grant in the Fall of 2017. With this grant, we are currently expanding our new theme of University Connections. Our school offers four unique pathways of Design, Arts, Engineering, and Humanities. All courses at SRMHS fall into one or more of the pathways. Students declare a pathway at the end of their ninth-grade year though they are not limited to only courses within the pathway. By choosing a pathway our hope is to make sure students are aware of all the classes we offer and taking the classes that truly interest them.
