Schools in the Lake Norman Area

Can you find an excellent education in the public schools of the greater Charlotte area? This section contains information on where you can find objective school ratings. Since my area of expertise is the Lake Norman area, I will focus on two schools. The schools of Bailey Middle and William Amos Hough High—that combination—has excellent scores. These two schools serve parts of Huntersville, most if not all of Cornelius, and much of Davidson. Check out this website for objective scoring of the schools in multiple categories Click on the NC School Report Cards. For a complete list of North Carolina schools and much more detail on the ratings, you are invited to download this Excel spreadsheet. Note that it is organized by county, and the county of interest is Mecklenburg.

Please note that MLS listings may be showing last year’s school assignments rather than the upcoming school assignments for August, 2018. The official website for Charlotte-Mecklenburg schools reports, “Bradley Middle students living in the Grand Oak Elementary home school area as well as the portion of the Torrence Creek Elementary home school attendance area north of (and including) South Brent Drive and Charterhouse Lane will be assigned to Hopewell High instead of Hough High. The home middle school will not change for these students. They will continue to attend Bradley Middle.”
