The Wake Forest School System

Just a 30-minute drive from Raleigh lies the suburb of Wake Forest, North Carolina. Wake Forest has a population of about 30,000 residents, and the majority of its school-age children attend public schools in the Wake County Public School System (WCPSS). WCPSS is the largest school district in the state of North Carolina, and it has a total enrollment of over 150,000 students at nearly 175 schools.

The class sizes of Wake Forest’s public high schools fluctuate a great deal. Some schools have a student-teacher ratio that matches the state average, but most others have student-teacher ratios that are much higher.

When your child is struggling in school, it’s vital to find help. Catching problems early can prevent minor misunderstandings from becoming bad academic habits. However, if the only study aids your student receives are review workbooks, he or she won’t receive the feedback needed to prevent problems from snowballing. When you choose private tutoring, your child gets individual attention with immediate feedback. Tutors can customize lessons to keep your child engaged while he or she works to overcome academic challenges. Varsity Tutors can help you find the best possible Wake Forest tutor for your child's needs. Face-to-face via in-person or online sessions, your son or daughter can learn in an environment that’s free of the distractions and pressures present in a typical classroom.

Wake Forest Test Scores

The chart above provides a look at how well the public high schools in Wake Forest have prepared their students for the End of Grade (EOG) exams. Students begin taking the EOG exams in third grade and continue taking a version of these state-mandated assessments until high school graduation. These annual standardized tests assess a student’s mastery of the concepts taught during the course of the school year. Once students begin high school, they start taking subject-specific End of Grade exams, including tests for biology, civics and economics, mathematics, and English.

Students in their junior and senior years of high school must also review for college admissions exams like the SAT and ACT. If your high schooler could use some guidance as he or she nears test day, enlist the expertise of a private tutor. Tutors can maximize the efficiency of your child’s review by narrowing down your child’s areas of weakness through assessment tests. The results can direct your child’s review by placing the focus on exactly which skills need more work. Once your child and the tutor have done a thorough review of the concepts in question, the tutor can check your student’s knowledge by administering another set of practice problems to track his or her progress.

Wake Forest is near a wide variety of nationally recognized institutions of higher education. Its proximity to Raleigh’s many colleges and universities means the perfect college for your child might be right in your own backyard. Here's how area colleges rank nationally.

Session Summaries by Tutors

Tutoring review by Manuel in Wake Forest, NC
We reviewed trigonometric identities and Pythagorean identities. This is the final topic for review for her midterm exam on Friday. Overall the student has made great strides from when we started, and even though since we started working together we've only reviewed half the topics on the midterm I feel that she has a good chance of doing really well. Her issues regarding the material involve minor clarifications as a result she has been able to improve on her grades.

Tutoring review by Cameron in Wake Forest, NC
We went over graphing and interpreting rational functions. In particular, we worked to find the domain of these functions, the x,y intercepts, the vertical asymptotes, horizontal asymptotes, and the holes in the graph. We discussed and practiced the rules for when we have horizontal asymptotes. We also talked about holes. At the end, we built functions from information given. The worksheet was 14 problems, and he was fantastic. He did a great job grasping the concepts and applying them to obtain the correct results. He responded well when new information/confusing topics were explained. He seemed very positive even though some of these problems can be very long and painstaking. I look forward to working with him again next week.

Tutoring review by Caryn in Wake Forest, NC
Today, the student and I went over the homework I assigned her from yesterday. She also completed another timed SAT section. We also looked at another section and just went through and discussed which strategies she would use to solve the problems (i.e. eliminating answer choices, substituting answer choices, choosing her own numbers, etc.).

Tutoring review by Abigail in Wake Forest, NC
In this two hour session, the student and I worked exclusively on the reading section of the SAT. We focused on making sure he understood the readings as he did them. I also left him with a new SAT essay prompt to write for practice.

Tutoring review by Richard in Wake Forest, NC
We began today's session with the student identifying homework in two subject areas: math and science. She began working on a total of 8 problems that consisted of fractions being added or subtracted. She completed 4 during our time together, commenting that this was excellent preparation for her test on Wednesday. She was able to much more readily solve these problems today than a couple weeks ago. She explained that her teacher had been working with her one-on-one during the school day recently. Next, she began reading from her online science text about gravity. She read several pages and easily answered the questions based on the text. Currently, she is earning a B+ in this class--an accomplishment she is proud of, as am I. We concluded the hour with her returning to her math problems.
