Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools are nationally recognized for balancing academic achievement with rich opportunities in the arts and humanities. Students and parents have a world of choices, from classical studies to information technology to international programs. Magnet schools offer students the opportunity to focus on a particular theme or curriculum, including performing arts, Montessori and language immersion. Myers Park High School strong focus on technology has resulted in numerous awards and honors for innovation and creativity in the classroom. And CMS’s Pre-K program is serving as a model for similar programs throughout the state and country. But even with such diversity, CMS never loses sight of giving each and every student a firm foundation in the basics of reading, writing and mathematics.
