I'm so glad that I transferred to enloe sophomore year. This diverse GT school offers so much for any type of student. The school specifies in fields for both sides of the brain; the creative and academic. I personally came to school for the dance program. I am so lucky to attend a school with such a high-level, intelligent dance program that offers endless amounts of opportunities. Enloe is the one of the only magnets schools in Wake County that offers 5 levels of dance. I'm so grateful to be in level 5, which is, the college dance preparatory program that is also known as dance ensemble. The instructor provides opportunities for us to put on our resumes and skill progression. The assignments handed to us consist of ways of learning how to prepare for college dance and to get involved with the dance world; such as designing resumes and creating audition solos.

Enloe is one of the greatest schools in Wake County, and if not, in the state! I would definitely recommend this to any student that is willing to be hardworking and open to new and exciting challenges.

For a motivated student, Enloe is hard to beat in terms of academics. Similar to most schools, if a student is not interested in difficult classes, there is a fairly easy path consisting of standard level classes; however, if a student wants to maximize their college-level classes and excel in a particular area, there are a plethora of options available.

Mathematics is probably the subject with the most thorough course selection. As mentioned above, there are much easier classes available, but here I will list the hardest path. I was lucky enough to avoid the abomination of common-core by one year, so some of the lower-level classes I list will no longer be available. In ascending order, these are the math classes I have taken at Enloe: Algebra II, Precalculus, Calculus AB/BC, Calculus III/Differential Equations, IB Further Math. Algebra II and Precalc are pretty self-explanatory, but Calculus AB/BC is a special double-period class, which is not offered at every school. Instead of learning basic differentiation and integration one year and series the next, AB/BC is a double-period class which combines both curriculums. Calc III/Differential Equations are actually two dual-enrollment classes that are always taken together. Dr. Lyerly, a professor with affiliation to NCSU (although he teaches full-time at our school) teaches the class, and the finals are all taken at NC State University. As this class also requires you to enroll at NC State, you can also obtain an ID without cost, allowing you convenient perks such as renting laptops and 24/7 access to certain buildings on campus. IB Further math is mostly and amalgamation of higher-level math topics such as linear algebra and graph theory, and is seen as a preparatory course for the IB Math HL exam.

I've had a good time being involved in different clubs and activities. There's more than enough clubs to join, as well as athletics and fine arts, so anyone can find an extracurricular that they'd enjoy. What makes Enloe unique is the sheer number of different activities you could join, and the numerous amounts of people you get to interact with through that. I would choose this school again if I could do it all over; the only thing I would change is that I'd join more clubs!
