Charlotte Schools

Crestdale Middle School

Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools (CMS) 

The Charlotte region's public schools are consolidated into countywide school districts.  Charlotte-Mecklenburg is the largest district in the State of North Carolina and among the top 25 in the nation.  There are 161 schools in CMS and over 129,000 students. 

Fast Facts and WOW Facts give details of the school system and an overview of significant features of CMS programs. 

Student assignment zones to individual schools do not correspond to city or town boundaries. As new schools are built to accommodate the growth of neighborhoods and the student population, student assignment zones can and do change.  Use the Pupil Assignment Finder to find school assignments for an individual address.

Queens Grant Charter School

Private and Charter Schools 

The Charlotte region has many independent private schools, both secular and religious. The Mecklenburg Area Catholic Schools provide a system of eight parochial schools within Mecklenburg County.  There are several charter schools within the county as well.  Charter schools are created and run by parents and/or community organizations but receive public per-pupil funding from the state.  Enrollment in the charter schools is by lottery. 

Queens University

Colleges and Universities 

Charlotte is home to a number of colleges and universities.  The University of North Carolina at Charlotte (UNCC) is the state's fourth largest university.  Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC), the state's largest community college, has six campuses across Mecklenburg County.  Queens University and Johnson C. Smith University are private institutions offering undergraduate classes in Charlotte. 

Johnson & Wales University recently located its headquarters campus in uptown Charlotte.  It is a top-rated culinary school and offers degrees in hospitality and business. 

The public schools together with the many private school opportunities provide families with a broad range of educational offerings and programs for all types of educational needs.
