Wake tops other urban districts in UNC system performance

The tune from Wake is a lot more upbeat about the latest report coming from Queens University of Charlotte.

As noted in today's article, the report found that Wake's high school graduates outperformed those from Durham, Charlotte, Forysth and Guilford when it comes to academic performance in the UNC system. The Wake students also had the higher UNC graduation rate of the group.
