I can comment on the commute from Wake Forest to NCSU as I do it daily... during the "rush hours" (7-9am, 4-7pm) it can take up to 45-55 minutes (depending on where in Wake Forest to different parts of campus - Centennial Campus is the furthest). During other "off times" it can be as 'quick as' 25 minutes. The main route is down US 1/Capital Blvd into downtown and it is wrought with congestion and stoplights.

Also parking on campus is a nightmare and expensive.

Wake Forest has both. Most elementary schools are year round now to east over crowding. Middle Schools are both traditional and year round at this time.

Default Wake Forest Schools

Any plans to make Wake Forest/Rolesville High School a full time school. Are there any ammendments coming up for vote, or how is it decided. Also anyone have a list of traditional middle schools in Wake Forest. I am in favor of traditional school years and would appreciate some feedback as I am looking at homes in Wake Forest/Rolesville (as long as children don't go to Knightdale High School) which does not have the same ratings as WF/Rolesville.

High schools won't be going to year-around any time soon -- too much conflict w/ college preparation, testing, and sports schedules.
