As shown in the plans that are online, the unit count and overall arrangement is identical to what we last showed the Glenwood-Brooklyn neighborhood. There are a total of (8) units, including the existing house at the corner of Glenwood and Jefferson. Each unit has an individual front entry and porch facing the street. With the exception of the existing house, all parking is accommodated in basement garages under each unit and parking access is from the rear alley.
A special announcement received from Carolyn Jackson, the alumni and development officer at the school. You can learn more about the school here.

It is hard to believe that another summer has passed and that a new school year is about to begin. Raleigh Charter High School is excited to open our thirteenth year in our renovated home at 1307 Glenwood Avenue.
We want to remind you and your CAC members and area residents that Raleigh Charter High School begins classes ten days earlier than the area public schools. Our students will visit teachers, attend meetings and purchase books during the day Monday, August 15. We anticipate longer carpool lines during the first few weeks of school. After that, lines should shorten and traffic should move more smoothly.
On May 3rd Raleigh Charter High School submitted a "Plot Plan" to the City of Raleigh for site modifications associated with a change of use of the Methodist Office Building at 1307 Glenwood Avenue (map).
Raleigh Charter High School opened its doors in the fall of 1999, with a focus on citizenship education and a college-preparatory curriculum. It is currently in its 11th year of operation. The original charter, granted by the State Department of Public Instruction, was renewed once for five years and has recently been renewed for a ten-year period.
