It's certainly not a good thing to be on the bus that long, but this is an extreme example, and I don't think it's driven by diversity. The route starts on the fringes of Wake County development, so it's naturally going to be a long route.

Leesville Road would be a closer school for them, but that school is already filled by closer students. Sanderson is marginally closer than Millbrook as well. Not everybody can go to their closest school...it depends on capacity and relative locations. So it's simply an issue with there not being that many high schools out in an area that is just getting developed.

That area is targeted for the future "H-11" high school, but it's not part of the just-passed bond measure.
Under the "choice" plan, the homes were split between Leesville & Wakefield (both of which are closer than Sanderson or Millbrook). This was changed to Millbrook under the diversity plan.
