To keep up with projected growth in some parts of the county and prevent the overcrowding of schools, we’re opening three new schools:
- Apex Friendship Elementary, 801 Humie Olive Road, Apex, opening in August 2022
- Barton Pond Elementary, 12004 Strickland Road, Raleigh, opening August 2022
- Herbert Akins Road Middle, 2255 Herbert Akins Road, Fuquay-Varina, opening July 2022
Other parts of the proposal are aimed at relieving some overcrowded schools, increasing the base attendance areas at under-utilized schools, and improving transportation efficiency.
Some students affected by this proposal will be able to submit a stability transfer and remain at their current school. Review the stability rules.

This switch from Leesville High to Millbrook High makes no sense. The school board tried this 11 years ago and agreed that the difference in distance traveled and time on the bus made no sense for Boulder Creek neighborhood. Now you have switched only a few neighborhoods but none around Boulder Creek except for Hawthorne neighborhood. I am puzzled why Barton's Creek Overlook or Barton's Creek Bluffs are kept in Leesville High. These two neighborhoods that surround us. Please keep us at Leesville! Thank you.

So I have heard the the kids who live in the Lakes at Umstead neighborhood near Umstead Park go to Athens Drive High School but not Broughton. I think that this is absurd because the kids go to elementary and middle school with future Broughton students. The child has to make new friends and release all those middle school and elementary school. This is bad for the mental health of the children. The base assignment for this neighborhood is Oberlin and all the other skids go to Broughton for high school. Also, Broughton is closer to the neighborhood. Please send those kids to Broughton and not Athens! Thank you.
