In Raleigh you don't pick your schools, the WCPSS has an elaborate system and they like changing it up. I have a child that they put in 3 different elementary schools, I pulled him out and put him in a Catholic school. He is happy there, and getting a real education, not day care, which is what the bulk of what happens in Wake Co. Schools. Loads of people drive past a school to get to their childs school. I recommend a private school or picking a different place, like Chapel Hill. To my knowledge they don't bus and move kids from school to school.
