Wake County Public School System has been named best in the nation for exemplifying equity, excellence and diversity while sustaining strong and dedicated support for magnet schools. WCPSS Superintendent Cathy Moore accepted the Donna Grady-Creer Award for Magnet Sustainability at the Magnet Schools of America national conference in Baltimore in April. WCPSS was selected for its continued commitment to excellence in academics and diversity through its national award-winning magnet programs.
A record 36 WCPSS schools were named either schools of excellence or distinction by Magnet Schools of America this past January. Wake STEM Early College High School in Raleigh was named best secondary magnet school in the nation; and Reedy Creek Magnet Middle School in Cary, which features a Center for the Digital Sciences, was honored with the New and Emerging Magnet School Award. Both schools were among the 11 WCPSS schools to be named Magnet Schools of Excellence earlier this year. Learn more at wcpss.net.
