Wake Forest is over 100 years old and was once the home of Wake Forest College; today, it is a university that is situated in Winston-Salem, NC, and the Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary now calls the old Demon Deacon campus home. Education and progress are still central to the town's personal tenets, and there are nine traditional public schools, two charter schools, and three private schools currently serving grade-school level education. Additionally, two Montessori schools make this small city ideal for families with preschool-aged children. A well-maintained parks and recreation system helps keep citizens healthy and happy. Ten parks and community centers meet a wide variety of social affairs and athletics, including baseball, tennis and swimming.
