The school does a great job with the children. I have met with different teachers on several occasions and they all care very much about the children. They truly seem to do everything possible to make sure no child gets over looked or left behind. David

Charlotte Secondary School is the best! I have two daughters attending here and they both love it! One is in 6th grade and one is in 9th grade! I am so glad they can stay in one school from Middle to High school. My girls are so excited to be here. They both have wonderful teachers!
