The Southeast Raleigh Magnet High School: Center For Leadership & Technology is a magnet high school in Raleigh, North Carolina, United States. It opened in 1997 as a magnet school with a focus on math, science, and technology. The school focuses on said topics, but also places a strong emphasis on leadership.
In February 1994 Wake County officials asked the Wake County School Board to provide a school for the southeastern area of Raleigh; its teaching should focus on math, science and technology. On July 28, 1997 the school opened for grades 9 to 12, with an initial student population of 1100. Beginning with the 2004/2005 school year, the school changed its name to Southeast Raleigh Magnet High School: Center for Leadership and Technology. The name change came with a new initiative on the part of former principal John Modest to encourage students through school activities to develop strong leadership skills.
Since its opening many concepts pioneered at Southeast Raleigh Magnet High School have been implemented throughout Wake County, including block scheduling and senior graduation projects.
In the school year 2006/2007, the school had a total population of 1,866 students. Southeast Raleigh Magnet High School originally was built to serve 1,699 students, but has added 16 mobile units (trailers) to increase that number to 2,083. With the trailers, the school is at 89.6% of its full capacity. Students attend school from 7:25 AM to 2:30 PM, with four classes each semester. Some classes, such as Advanced Placement courses, marching band and upper-level chorus, also operate on "A" or "B" days, allowing semester-long classes to be stretched out over a year.
