See why Wake County has one of the top performing school systems in the nation. 

A 15-mile radius around downtown Holly Springs stretches to downtown Raleigh in the northeast, up through Apex, Cary and Morrisville all the way to the southern section of the Research Triangle Park in the north, into Chatham and Lee counties in the west, down to Harnett County in the south and over to Garner in the east. 

This 15-mile radius - which would be considered a very reasonable commute—represents a population of 576,000 people and a total civilian labor force of near 300,000. North Carolina is a right-to-work state and has one of the lowest unionization rates in the nation.
