Wake County Public School System
The University of North Carolina System (UNC) annually reports statistics related to characteristics of freshmen classes from each high school and district in the state. Wake County Public School System (WCPSS) graduates were more successful at gaining admission and making academic progress at the member institutions of the UNC system than was true for graduates of other North Carolina high schools in 2006-07. Just over 46% of WCPSS graduates in 2006-07 enrolled in a UNC system institution the following fall, as compared with a little under 30% for all public high schools in North Carolina. WCPSS graduates had higher rates of academic success during their freshman year, including a larger percentage of students earning at least a 3.0 GPA (51% vs. 40% for all NC high school graduates), and a larger percentage enrolled in higher level English and math courses.
