CHARLOTTE-MECKLENBURG SCHOOLS

Some south Charlotte residents hope a change in superintendents this summer will give them a new shot at revising plans for two new schools in their area.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools seemed locked in on plans for those schools: A high school scheduled to open in 2023 and a K-8 school, informally known as Rea Farms, slated to open in 2020.

When the state posts enrollment tallies this fall, it’s a safe bet that the three biggest schools in North Carolina will be Ardrey Kell, South Mecklenburg and Myers Park high schools. They’re all south of uptown Charlotte, and each of them draws more than 3,000 students.
