THE ORIGINAL RELOCATION GUIDE — TRIANGLE NC | VOLUME 17 — ISSUE 2 56 APEX Proximity to the tech hub at RTP gives a boost to the local schools, already among the state's best. Apex High School offers the Academy of Information Technology, a four-year program that exposes students to the IT field through coursework and internships. With so many attractive qualities, Apex has seen its population double since 2000. The town has taken steps to address the rapid growth, including a new toll road that cuts the commute time to Research Triangle in half, to 20 minutes. And the newly-opened Apex Friendship High School, with cutting-edge technology like 70-inch monitors in every classroom and 3-D printers, relieves overcrowding at Apex High. Apex has all the things you would expect to live well in North Carolina — a charming downtown, top-notch schools, the kind of community spirit that draws more than a third of the population to the annual PeakFest street fair each summer (the town's largest public event), affordable housing and high-paying jobs in the tech-industry in RTP. Apex is located in Wake County. Estimated population is 42,150 with a median household income of $88,558. Median home price is $243,125. GOTTA DO LIST: • Enjoy small-town theater and artwork at the Halle Cultural Arts Center, with three galleries, two studio classrooms and a 150-seat theater. • Celebrate monthly First Fridays in Apex's downtown district and feel the energy of the town's local art scene. • Tour historic Hughes and Salem Streets on the first Sunday in December to see the town dressed in holiday finery. • Eat a biscuit at Dallas Famous Chicken & Biscuits.
