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 Abbotts Creek would be Durant Road Elementary.
Abbotts Creek 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.
