Wake County Schools has a "choice" plan at the moment. It is rather confusing but each home has a "base" school but you can request to be assigned to a different school and the request will be determined based on availability.

For further information, you can visit

Hope that helps.

Hi Cheryl,
First, welcome to Wake Forest..I would suggest you'll want to work with a Broker, who is a homeowner and long time resident of Wake Forest, an agent who LISTENS to your needs & knows what will fit those needs. One who can tell you about the background, nuiansces, schools, demographics of each subdivision. Share information that will help you find the perfect fit and make the best investment. An agent who will inform you who the builder was on down to traffic patterns. Things you may not consider when so focused on the home, yet long range, the incedentals that add to your quality of life you'll come to value and appreciate long term. Remember using a Buyers agent comes with all the benefits and experience and is no cost to the Buyer!
Best of Luck!

Kindergarten enrollment for public school (traditional calendar) usually begins in February... they changed the cutoff birthdate recently for entry into public schools from Oct. 15 to Aug. 31, I think, so if your child has a late birthday, it may affect enrollment. I'm sure the school will be glad to answer any questions you have if you call the receptionist or secretary. Hope that helps! If you decide to go the public school route, you can find info on and check out test scores and AYP info. on the site. Have a great weekend! ... more

there are language schools around and the community college system does offer English as a second language. So let me know if you cannot find any in Wake Forest and I will get you the numbers and locations. The link below is the the Wake Technical College online catalog site. They have English as a Second Language class the designation is ESL.

Hope this helps,

Carl: To answer your second question: There is a large movie theatre in Wake Forest, so that will be an easy commute for you. You would also be only about 10-15 minutes away from several others in Raleigh.
For dining: There are several 'chain' restaurants in Wake Forest; Texas Steakhouse, Applebees, Red Robin, and many others. Also, downtown Wake Forest has The Olde English Tea Room, a great place for quiet intimate dining.
Driving into Raleigh , there are many more choices for fine dining and night life.
Hope you will enjoy getting to know the area.
