East Wake High School (formerly known as Vaiden Whitley High School) is the only public high school in Wendell, North Carolina. East Wake is part of the Wake County Public School System. The school is unique in the Wake County School System because it is subdivided into four separate smaller schools. The individual schools all have the same core curriculum, but have a different selection of elective classes that allow the students to focus in a particular area of interest.[1] The four subdivided schools function as one school for sports and other extracurricular activities, and also share a campus.
