Charlotte-Mecklenburg School Choice 

In addition to home schools, CMS offers a number of school options, each with a signature theme or program that provides unique educational opportunities designed to engage students’ interests and talents. CMS school options include magnet programs, career academies, early and middle colleges, and other distinctive school models. Each option focuses on ensuring students are prepared for college and a career while exposing students to different learning approaches, leadership preparation, and engaging curriculum.

School Choice Options for High School

CMS offers many magnet program options for rising 9th graders.  Students at ARMS in the IB Programme for the 2023-2024 school year can continue IB at East Mecklenburg High School.  These students do not need to participate in the lottery to continue IB.  Registration will begin in March.

IB students who are interested in another magnet program other than IB for high school need to complete the lottery process and request the programs by first, second and third choice.  Placement in another magnet program is NOT guaranteed.  

IB students who do not want to continue IB or any other magnet program for high school and want to go to their home high school (school assigned based on your address), you MUST complete the lottery to exit IB and request to be placed in your home high school.  Currently PowerSchool has you listed to attend East Meck, so when you pick your classes in March for Fall, 2024, your class choices will be sent to East.
