History

Enloe High School was originally organized as two different schools that shared athletic facilities between adjacent campuses — William G. Enloe Senior High and Charles B. Aycock Junior High. The original Enloe campus was opened in 1962 as the first integrated secondary school in Raleigh for the education of students participating in grades seven through twelve. Charles Aycock (image courtesy NC State Department of Archives and History) Charles Brantley Aycock (1 November 1859 -- 4 April 1912) was the Democratic governor of the U.S. state of North Carolina from 1901 to 1905. ... Desegregation is the process of ending racial segregation, most commonly used in reference to the United States. ...


Three years after Enloe opened its doors, Aycock was created on an adjacent campus as a junior high school to educate students in the seventh through ninth grades, and Enloe became a senior high school with concentrated education for grades ten through twelve. Enloe absorbed the Aycock campus in 1979, becoming a modern high school focused on education educating ninth through twelfth grade students. The Aycock building became the East Campus, while the original Enloe complex became the West Campus.[6] Middle school and junior high school cover a period of education that straddles primary education and secondary education and serve as a bridge between them. ...

In 1980, Enloe began providing magnet courses for "gifted and talented" students in Wake County. The school was promoted to full magnet status in 1982. The "magnet" designation means that Enloe offers many courses that other Wake County schools do not, and provides services to its students that are not available to them at their "base" schools. At Enloe, like many magnet schools, the majority of the student body uses publicly provided transportation to shuttle them to school, though Enloe retains its own "base" population. In the U.S. system of education, a magnet school is a public school which offers innovative courses, specialized training, etc. ... Wake County is a county located in the state of North Carolina. ...


In July 1997, Enloe became an IB World School, allowing students to pursue the challenging International Baccalaureate Programme.

Evangelist controversy

In February, 2007, the school came under fire from Muslim advocacy groups and the ACLU after history teacher Robert Escamilla invited Kamil Solomon, a Coptic Christian evangelist and head of Kamil International Ministries, to speak about his experiences with Christianity and Muslims. The Council on American Islamic Relations and parents of Muslim and secular students condemned the school for breaching federal civil rights laws and promoting hate in a public school. School principal Beth Cochran promised to investigate the matter but refused to issue an apology saying the school was only promoting "the free exchange of ideas."[9] Year 2007 (MMVII) is the current year, a common year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar and the AD/CE era in the 21st Century. ...
