The initial proposal from the Wake County Public School System (WCPSS) Board of Education was approved at their October 17, 2017 meeting. Slated to operate on the land that was sold to the WCPSS by Preston Development, who are the developers of the South Lakes new home community, the most recent step in the in the project moving forward, was the approval of the submitted, schematic designs by the WCPSS Board at their May 17, 2018 meeting.
The approved design will have Willow Springs High boasting 110 teaching spaces and allow a capacity of 2,262 students. The 54-acre site at 1704 Old Honeycutt Road (on the corner of Old Honeycutt and Kennebec Roads) will have four stories and will initially serve as a swing facility for Fuquay Varina High School, while it undergoes a renovation process of its own.
The announcement of Willow Springs High School, (and South Lakes Elementary, set for a 2020 completion) being opened right across the street brings an even more alluring aspect to the already family friendly and community first atmosphere that is always prevalent along your journey to discover your own personal meaning of South Lakes Living. Staff members and students are set to move into and begin classes at the currently under construction school for the fall semester of 2019.
