The public education system in Raleigh—more specifically the Wake County Public School District has been named one of the best in the country, lending to Raleigh’s growing population of families wishing to give their children the best education possible. But there are also 11 equally respected charter schools within city limits that have drawn, and continue to draw families to take up residence in Raleigh.

The Wake Early College of Health and Sciences high school (or WECHS) serves students in grades 9 through 12 and, far beyond simply offering a high school diploma, graduates students with an Associate of Arts degree or the equivalent amount of credits to qualify them to enter into a 4-year college as juniors.

The Magellan Charter School serves students from grades 3 through 8, and has the capacity to school 300 students at a time. In addition to focusing on math, science, language arts and social studies, the school balances out its academic aims by hosting boy’s and girl’s soccer, tennis, basketball, cross country running, and baseball teams.

These are just two examples of what the city of Raleigh has to offer in the way of charter schools. If you’re a parent interested in taking advantage of the educational opportunities for your child, seek out apartments Raleigh NC near the vicinity of your desired school.
