From Charlotte Secondary School

Our school community is an academically, culturally and socio-economically diverse mix of middle and high school students. This atmosphere provides our students with a variety of experiential learning opportunities. As specified in our charter, we actively recruit students who thrive in a smaller school environment, as well as those who are traditionally under-represented in high school college preparatory programs.
