Enloe High School prepares all students for the global society by giving them a broad spectrum of opportunities to prepare for education and employment beyond high school. Enloe High School is a community dedicated to a standard of excellence in education that fosters scholarship, integrity, diversity and equity.
William G. Enloe High School opened in 1962. Named in honor of the Mayor of Raleigh at the time, Enloe answered the need for a secondary educational institution for all students living in the vicinity of the Longview Gardens Community. It opened as Raleigh's first integrated high school. Enloe initially housed students from grades seven through eleven. The Class of 1963 was the first graduating class.
In 1965, Aycock Junior High School opened on an adjacent campus. Students in grades seven through nine were assigned to the junior high school, and William G. Enloe became the senior high school serving students in grades ten through twelve.
During the spring of 1979, Aycock Junior High School was merged with Enloe High School to form a 9-12 high school. Aycock's building was designated as Enloe East and the Enloe building was designated as Enloe West. In the 1980-81 school year, a magnet component designed to provide specialized courses for gifted and talented students was added to the academic program at Enloe. Approximately 300 students participated in the magnet program each of the first two years of its existence.
Enloe students enjoy the school's diversity reflected in the curriculum and in the student population. If Enloe could be summed up in one word, it would be excellence. We offer students the opportunity to explore and grow to their full potential. Whether it be through academics, sports, or the arts, Enloe provides students the opportunity to perform, to learn, to grow, and to dream.
