Our third graders in Mr. Sather's class honor the class theme of community by inviting their Growing Together Preschool friends to The Raleigh School for a Thanksgiving feast. Leading up to the feast, the third graders design several Thanksgiving themed crafts to teach their preschool buddies. This week these new friends enjoyed time together as they made crafts and sat down for a Thanksgiving meal prepared by the third grade parents. A heartwarming tradition, familiar faces such as Ted Storck returned to campus for the event, helping with the roasting of turkeys and serving of the food.
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.
We are now accepting new enrollment applications for the 2019-2020 school year with a first round application deadline of January 11, 2019. Experiencing our teachers interacting in the classroom and on campus is the best way to understand our school. We strongly encourage prospective parents to visit our school on one of our preschool or elementary tours. Book your tour here or sign up to attend our Elementary Open House on November 14, 2018.
One of the things our families love about our school is that it's small with just 160 preschool and 264 elementary students. It does present a challenge for newcomers though, with limited openings for new students. If you decide The Raleigh School might be a good fit for your child, our best advice to you is apply early! Be sure to submit your child's completed application along with all supporting documentation before January 19, 2019 as most new children are placed from our first round of applicants.

Sunday was the perfect hot day for ice cream, freeze pops and cold water. What a treat to see so many students, teachers, parents, and alumni at our first annual Sundae Social. It was a sweet celebration to kick-off the new school year! #TRSCommunity
