The high quality of education found throughout Wake, Durham and Orange counties is a primary reason that the Triangle area continues to be heralded as one of the best places to live in the country. And the relocation of people to Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill from other parts of the nation and around the world results in high expectations and even higher standards for school performance.
Our public schools earn high marks across the board, outperforming school districts across the state and nation in end-of-course proficiency tests, SAT scores and other performance-measuring criteria.
The Triangle area is a centerpiece for those seeking to pursue higher education. We are the home of UNC-Chapel Hill, NC State, Duke University, Campbell Law School, Meredith College, Peace College, NC Central, St. Augustine’s College and more. A total of 18 colleges, universities and community colleges call the Triangle region home.
