This school is awsome because it has a great diversity of kids. I myself have made plenty of friends.

Great school. The principal is wonderful and regularly keeps parents informed through parent email messages. The staff is very caring about the students and understanding of the age group they are dealing with.

This school has a very good teacher base. Students at this school do well with their academics and teachers make sure they know their material before jumping ahead to new things. Sports teams are very good. Principal is wonderful. Staff is very calm and keep the children interested in school. Students are taught well and with enough disipline to keep a middle schooler in check.

We moved here from South Florida and love it here! This is an excellent school with wonderful, caring teachers and staff. My children adjusted quickly anf fit right in here. My child is in the gifted program and was truly challanged at Wakefield.

We moved into the area expecting to upgrade our daughter's education and surroundings with a great community school, but found something else. The school is well run, but the students seem cold and pretentious. This was the last thing we expected in North Raleigh. With so many people moving into the area, we can only hope that the new residents provide a future lift to the interactions between students and possibly a challenge to the staff from the work of other school districts that are more focused on excellence, not on themselves!

Wakefield was alright. I met some friends there and the place was well kept up. I did feel it was a safe environment.

Wakefield is a terrific school, the school is in a great enviroment and it is well taken care of. Also my son has made many friends there when he first transfored there from east millbrook which was a horrible school. I thought that the teachers were great and the grades were great. I would definately recommend this school for any parent that really cares about their childs education.

My daughter is in 6th grade at Wakefield Middle. She loves it. AVID is a great program offered there that other schools don't have. My daughter has great teachers and really likes the kids there. She has made a ton of friends considering she was at a different school last year. And the High School has an awesome football team. Go Wakefield!

Wakefield is an excellent school. Compared to millbrook, Wakefield is heaven. My daughter gets the education she needs along with great friends.
