Our Mission: The Raleigh School is a cooperative community of children, parents and teachers that fosters a love of learning in an atmosphere of challenge, inquiry and respect.

Triangle Independent School Consortium

The Raleigh School is a member of the Triangle Independent School Consortium (TISC). Member schools work together to help families select the school which best fits the need of their child and the needs of the family as a whole.

All members schools also participate in Independent School Fairs.

TISC Statement


The schools listed below are all members of the TRIANGLE INDEPENDENT SCHOOL CONSORTIUM (TISC). As a group, we are committed to helping parents find a good school match for their children. We recognize that our individual timetables for the admissions process are as unique as our schools themselves, and we want to assure you that we are willing to accommodate the needs of families who have applied to more than one of our schools.

If you have submitted applications by the deadline(s) to more than one TISC school, you will not be required to make a binding commitment or deposit until you have heard an initial admission decision from each of the TISC schools to which you have applied.

If you receive an admission offer that asks for a reply before you will hear from another TISC school, please immediately contact the offering school’s director of admission to request an extension of their reply date. We have agreed to grant such requests so that families will be able to make fully informed decisions. You will be granted an extension of five calendar days after the latest notification date of the TISC schools to which you have applied.

Please feel free to contact the directors of admission at any of our schools if you have questions.

The most amazing thing about this is that my children were in an environment that has fostered a love of learning. Not only is the learning fun but the teachers allow the kids to be kids and use their own creativity. No matter where they go to middle school I believe that TRS has set the foundation of how teachers should treat students and how people treat people.
