    Overall Experience: Enloe has something for everyone, but A LOT of issues. There are a lot of kids there with serious problems, and they can't get help because of the size of the school.

    Overall Experience: Enloe is a great school for students who are academically strong and have been since middle school. The main selling point of the school is their wide variety of higher-level AP and IB courses. Students here work extremely hard. If you or your child aren't seeking a challenging academic course load, Enloe may not be the school for you. This school is extremely competitive, and is a school where "it's cool to be smart". There is a great amount of school spirit, and though the football and basketball teams are lacking in accomplishments, there is usually a large turnout for homecoming games and games versus our rivals, Southeast Raleigh Magnet High School. As well as academics, the arts are also highly emphasized. Enloe offers a plethora of classes in the visual and performance arts. Enloe also has a TV Broadcasting station which students can use in semester long classes where they air a live news show called the 'LoeDown for school announcements.
