    The Wake County Public School System is one comprehensive school district serving the entire county including Raleigh, Cary, Apex, Wendell, Fuquay-Varina, Garner, Knightdale, Rolesville, Wake Forest, Holly Springs, Morrisville, and Zebulon.

    The system was formed in 1976 through the merger of the former city of Raleigh and Wake County school systems.  The system and its school board are committed to providing the highest possible quality of education to Wake County students, while maintainign fiscal responsibility and accountability.  It is the largest system in the state; 18th largest in the nation.

    Students in the Knightdale area are assigned to the following base schools: Forestville Road Elementary, Hodge Road Elementary, Lockhart Elementary, Knightdale Elementary, Lake Myra Elementary, East Wake Middle, Knightdale High or East Wake High.

    In some specific cases, a student can be assigned to a school other than these if a special need requires a special type of program not available at the base school, or if the student is accepted at a magnet school.

    The magnet application period ends February prior to the new school year.  Applications are available in January.  If you move into Wake County after application period, you may fill out an application, but frequently the slot will be filled during the application period.  For information regarding special education or magnet programs, contact Special Programs at 919-850-1921.

    Children who will be 5 years old by August 31 attend the full-day kindergarten program as established by state law.  Before registering, call Wake Public School System for all requirements.
