Families can learn about different school options for next year at the Wake County school system’s Magnet and Early College Fair on Saturday.
Representatives from all of Wake’s more than 40 magnet schools and early colleges will answer questions and distribute information from 9 a.m. to noon at Southeast Raleigh High School, 2600 Rock Quarry Road in Raleigh.
Parents can learn about different magnet themes, including a new K-12 immersion/global studies pathway. Last week, the school board restored magnet status to Broughton High School and Daniels Middle School in Raleigh and designated Hodge Road Elementary in Knightdale and Raleigh’s Jeffreys Grove and Stough elementary schools as new magnet schools that will allow more students to study Spanish and Mandarin Chinese.
Families can also learn about the early colleges, which offer students a chance to take college courses while working toward their high school diplomas.
