Students are assigned to new schools based on factors including: how close they are to the new school, how much the community is expected to grow, what other new schools will be built nearby in the future, and which calendars existing schools are operating on.
Here, we would like to hear feedback from families who would be assigned to Abbotts Creek Elementary School.
This new three-story school will open in 2015-16 on Durant Road in Raleigh on a traditional school calendar. The school will open with about 500 students in grades K-5. Under the first draft of the new enrollment plan, Abbotts Creek would draw students who currently reside in the attendance areas of Brassfield, Durant Road, Green, and Wildwood Forest elementary schools. The calendar option for this school would be Durant Road elementary school.
The school would feed into Wakefield and East Millbrook middle schools. This new school was funded by public bonds approved by Wake County voters in 2006 and 2013.
