Wake STEM Early College High School Honored with National Merit Award


March 6, 2022


Once again, Magnet Schools of America (MSA) honored dozens of WCPSS magnet schools with National Merit Awards.


Wake STEM Early College High School was named a School of Distinction.


To receive a national merit award, schools must submit a detailed application that is scored by a panel of educators. These schools are judged and scored on their demonstrated ability to raise student academic achievement, promote racial and socioeconomic diversity, provide integrated curricula and instruction, and create strong family and community partnerships that enhance the school’s magnet theme.


Magnet School of Distinction Awards are given to magnet schools that have met all the requirements outlined in the merit awards scoring rubric.
