Triangle schools remain on top nationally

Nine schools in the Triangle made Newsweek‘s list of the top 500 high schools in the country.

For many people, our school system stands as the sole reason they live here. And that’s not a bad reason at all, especially when its combined with affordable housing, terrific weather and renowned university system.

The highest on the list was the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics, a highly challenging public boarding school open to all students in the state for their junior and senior years. It was the first of its kind in the country and now has 17 other schools modeled after it around the country. The other, more traditional schools in the Triangle finding their way on to the list include Green Hope High School in Cary, Panther Creek in Cary, Apex High School, East Chapel Hill, Durham School of the Arts, Chapel Hill, Raleigh Charter and Enloe in Downtown Raleigh.

The Newsweek list is a coveted one and its publishing is anticipated each year, as we have been fortunate to have a number of schools find their place on it over the years. Here is Newsweek’s article.

Congratulations to all the teachers, students and administrations at each of our high schools making the list.
