ROLESVILLE — More than a hundred local dignitaries, residents, school personnel, public safety officers and school board members were on hand, Tuesday, for the highly anticipated ribbon cutting for the new Rolesville High, located at 1099 E. Young St.
Principal Erika Lucas announced the construction complete on Wake County’s first ever four-story high school.
Although the school will open Aug. 26 with just 600 ninth and 10th graders, when it reaches capacity, it will serve 2,262 students.
