    Administration & Policies at Wake Early College of Health & Sciences: The school administration and policies at Wake Early College of Health and Sciences are amazing. The administration not only addresses the policies, but also provides consequences for those who do not abide by these policies. The principal, along with the guidence councelor and other staff member, provides ways for students to get the help and assistance they need in order to succeed. Since Early College students have to college classes while they are still in high school, they often find it challenging to succeed; however, with the help of the principal and staff, students find their lives more promising.

    Sports & Fitness at Wake Early College of Health & Sciences: Wake Early College of Health and Sciences does not have any athletic teams since it is small school consisting of around 300-400 students. Even though, the school itself does not have sports teams, students are given the opportunity to participate in the sports teams of neighboring schools in the area.
