Schools in Charlotte and Union County NC


Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (CMS) is a countywide system like most of the school systems in North Carolina.  It is the largest district in the State of North Carolina and among the top 25 in the nation.

In 2013, over 140,000 students attended 160 schools.  School programs include traditional programs as well as specialized magnet themes.  Nine magnet themes are provided at 37 school locations.  The themes in the 2013-2014 school year are Center for Leadership and Global Studies, International Baccalaureate, Learning Immersion & Talent Development, Military and Global Leadership Academy, Montessori, Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM), Traditional, Visual & Performing Arts and World Languages-Language Immersion.  Magnet programs are expected to increase in the future.

CMS is an award-winning school system.  In 2011, it won the Broad Prize for Urban Education, the largest education prize in the nation.  Due to this award, 2012 seniors won $550,000 in scholarships.

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.   

Union County Schools

The Union County Public School (UCPS) system serves one of the fastest growing counties in the United States.  It is also one of the highest rated systems in North Carolina.

In 2013, 53 schools served over 40,000 students in the system.  UCPS is the sixth largest school district in the state.  It typically ranks at the top of the large North Carolina districts in testing and in graduation rates.  In 2011-2012, the system’s graduation rate was 89.5%.  89% of graduates that year planned to attend college.  2012 graduates won $87.7 million in scholarships.

Like Charlotte-Mecklenburg, student assignment zones to individual schools in Union County do not correspond to city or town boundaries.
