Raleigh Charter High School

Raleigh Charter High School is a free, independent public school chartered by the North Carolina State Board of Education.

In the summer of 1998, some parents of 8th graders at The Magellan Charter School decided to establish a new charter high school so that their students could continue to learn in a nurturing and academically rich environment.

From its inception through the 2010-2011 school year, Raleigh Charter occupied the historic Pilot Mill behind Peace College in downtown Raleigh (pictured). Over the summer of 2011 the school moved to the former Methodist Building on Glenwood Avenue. This location offers proximity to the downtown Raleigh resources that enhance classroom studies, additional and better classroom space, and a good and reliable central location for wake county and the surrounding areas. But the move was motivated not by dissatisfaction with Pilot Mill, but by financial issues: the school rented its first space, but owns the current one.

Famous quotes containing the words school, high, raleigh and/or charter:

    And so they have left us feeling tired and old.
    They never cared for school anyway.
    And they have left us with the things pinned on the bulletin board.
    And the night, the endless, muggy night that is invading our school.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    The most useful man in the most useful world, so long as only commodity was served, would remain unsatisfied. But, as fast as he sees beauty, life acquires a very high value.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Green springs the tree, hemp grows, the wag is wild,
    But when they meet, it makes the timber rot;
    It frets the halter, and it chokes the child.
    —Sir Walter Raleigh (1552?–1618)

    Farewell! thou art too dear for my possessing,
    And like enough thou know’st thy estimate:
    The charter of thy worth gives thee releasing;
    My bonds in thee are all determinate.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
