Hello Triangle! My family and I recently relocated to the Triangle area and settled in the town of Knightdale. All things considered this seemed like a great value for us. New houses, nice parks, walking trails, serviceable shopping area, and not over crowded by our definition.



Our child is only a year old, but we are starting to think about schools. It has been hard to gather concrete data on the schools in Knightdale. Some school data aggregates show the schools as being on the lower end, while others (city data included) make us feel more at ease.



Just wondering if anyone on this forum has had experience sending their kids to school in Knightdale. We're still a few years from seriously contemplating school assignment and so far we love Knightdale. It seems like the schools we would most likely end up at would be:


Lockhart ES (Base)
Forestville Road ES
Knightdale ES

Lake Myra ES
Thales Academy (Private)

WCPSS is looking to diversify the schools socioeconomically over the coming years which will ultimately wreak havoc on everyone. I wouldn't even worry about trying to figure out schools at this point because a lot will likely change by the time your kids are school aged.

^the salient point is that if the OP moves to one of the higher growth areas/school zones mentioned (like Forestville) then there's a chance they'll be reassigned in the next 4 years because of that growth.

other than personal experiences that you're asking for, the 2 best places to find data/info are:

NC Report Cards:

https://ncreportcards.ondemand.sas.c...=1&county=wake

Wake County's School Progress Reports:

https://www.wcpss.net/Page/5055

On NC Report Cards, you should really dive deep on the stats. Near the top for any school, on the right side, the default is "view performance by school/district" the other choice - the one to also consider - is "view performance by subgroup"

School assignments in Eastern Wake County have not changed much over the last 13 years. They did open a new elementary school about 4 years ago that led to reassignment for some children. Both of my children attended Lockhart Elementary and we were happy with their experience there but that was several years ago. That said, a lot can change in 4 years, especially if there are administrative changes. So feedback you get now may not mean much by then.
