The original Knightdale High School was in operation between the years of 1926-1965 when it was replaced by East Wake High School. Since that school closed the Knightdale community hoped to return a high school to the Knightdale area.

The new Knightdale High opened Tuesday, August 10, 2004 bringing the number of Wake County high schools to 17. Knightdale High and Forestville Road Elementary (on the same campus) are part of a collaborative effort between the school system, town of Knightdale and Wake County Parks and Recreation.

KHS's new three-story design is also environmentally-friendly, meaning it uses energy, water, materials and land resources sparingly; promotes occupant health and productivity; is flexible enough to last a long time; and minimizes negative impacts on the community.
