Schools in Mint Hill
Public schools in Mint Hill are part of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School system, a county-wide system that serves all of Mecklenburg County. Mint Hill students are assigned to a number of schools. Grades K through 5 attend elementary schools, grades 6 through 8 attend the middle schools and high schools include grades 9 through 12.
The school calendar begins in late August and ends by mid-June. Pupil assignment to schools does not correspond to town or other political boundaries and can change if new schools are built to relieve overcrowding at individual schools. Bus service is provided for students except those who live very close to an individual school.
The Queens Grant Community Charter School is another option for Mint Hill residents. It is open to all North Carolina residents and student enrollment is chosen by lottery. Queens Grant is beginning construction of a high school campus. Plans are also underway for construction of a new public high school in Mint Hill. The school, to open in 2010, would have approximately 100 classrooms and could hold approximately 2000 students. It will be located in the Clear Creek Business Park.
