Which public schools serve Sunset Oaks?

The children of Sunset Oaks attend Wake County schools, which consistently rank among the best in the state. Located close to home, our schools are smaller than many in the Wake County Public School System (WCPSS) and afford our students more one-on-one attention.

Some schools in WCPSS, including some of those available to children of Sunset Oaks, run on a multi-track year-round calendar, which takes the traditional 180-day school year and divides it into nine-week quarters with a three-week break at the end of each quarter.

Below we provide the current base and alternate schools that serve the Sunset Oaks community as of the 2015-2016 WCPSS school year. In addition, we’ve marked whether the school currently operates on a traditional or multi-track year-round school calendar. For current school system and school profile information, please visit
