Rand Road Elementary first opened in 1990. We became a multi-track year round school in 2007. Currently, we are a single track 4 school with about 575 students. Rand Road serves K - 5 as well as a developmentally delayed pre-K program and two ECS classes.
Each year we have the Rand Road Run which is now in it's 30th year.
Our staff and students have a great respect and openness for nature. This is evident when you visit our campus and see our outdoor learning spaces including a butterfly garden, natural area with nature trail, vegetable gardens and composting bins. We have been awarded azaleas through WRAL and continue to beautify our campus with community volunteers and twice annual beautification events.
