Dear Charlotte-Mecklenburg Virtual High School families,

Charlotte-Mecklenburg High School serves students in grades nine through 12 through an innovative, personalized approach to learning. Our goal is to provide a flexible, personalized learning experience that transcends traditional education models and prepares students for 21st-century citizenship.

Our coursework is delivered online using several digital platforms with the direct support of a licensed teacher. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Virtual High School teachers and staff develop courses that effectively engage online learners. Students have the option to come to our school to interact with their teachers daily or as needed.

We are a magnet school offering a wide variety of options for students. We work with North Carolina Virtual Public School, Edgenuity and CMS Canvas courses developed by our teachers. Our students can be selected to participate in the National Honor Society, Beta Club, or compete for the Presidential Volunteer Service Award. Our school met expected growth during the 2017-2018 school year.

Let me tell you a little about myself. I have been in education for 21 years and a principal at CMS for one year. Prior to coming to Charlotte-Mecklenburg Virtual High School in October, I was an assistant principal at Independence High School and Northridge Middle School. In addition, I have been a data analyst, testing coordinator and a teacher. All of these career choices have prepared me well to serve this school community. I received my undergraduate degree in music education at Appalachian State University and a master's degree in curriculum and supervision at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. I am currently pursuing a doctoral degree in educational leadership at Wingate University.

I am a native Charlottean who believes opportunities and access manifest through education. I am committed to helping students graduate prepared for the challenge of meeting any college or career option that they choose.

I am excited to partner with you and your student on this educational journey. Thank you for choosing Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools and Charlotte-Mecklenburg Virtual High School.

Stephanie Hood, principal
