We will miss our graduates and so enjoyed their time at The Raleigh School, many of them since their preschool days! They are headed for sixth grade as confident, compassionate students who have a passion for learning and leadership! We congratulate them as they begin middle school at schools such as Cary Academy, Durham Academy, St. Timothy's, Martin Middle School, Mills Park Middle School and The Exploris School!
Everything we do here is intended for one purpose – educating young children in the ideal manner.
We are passionate about nurturing children’s natural inclination to wonder, explore and discover.
Using an active, inquiry-based approach, we engage children’s hands, hearts and minds every day.
Our fifth-graders visited the nation's capital this month, a long-awaited highlight of their final year at The Raleigh School! Students prepared for the trip by researching landmarks and preparing guide materials; then, they presented at each stop on the tour. During fifth grade, they also studied the colonies and the American Revolution and practiced debate skills in a loyalists vs. patriots debate.
Our three Science Olympiad teams were captivated by science this weekend at the annual competition. Congratulations to our junior varsity team that won second place overall and our varsity team that won third place, as well as to our many individual winners! Students competed in many categories that showcased a love of science and critical thinking skills. They prepared all year under the guidance of Faculty Advisor Steve Sather and many volunteer coaches.
