A new high school is opening in the Ballantyne area in 2024. The new high school is situated on a 71-acre site in Ballantyne at the corners of Johnston Road and Community House Road. The new high school is expected to relieve over-crowding at Ardrey Kell High School in Ballantyne and South Mecklenburg and Myers Park High Schools in south Charlotte. Construction is 58% complete on the $146 million project. Opening is schedule for the 2024/2025 school year.
The new Ballantyne high school will include 100 classroom, several athletic fields, academic buildings, auditorium for performing arts, and a full-sized football stadium. To see all the renderings for the new Ballantyne high school, click here.
Given the population growth of south Charlotte and the Ballantyne area, a new high school is much needed. Currently south Charlotte and the Ballantyne area are served by Ardrey Kell High School, Myers Park High School and South Mecklenburg High School. Opened in 2006, Ardrey Kell High School now houses over 3,300 students. Opened in 1959, South Mecklenburg High School today houses over 3,200 students. Opened in 1951, Myers Park High School houses over 3,500 students. The new Ballantyne Ridge High School is expected to house just under 2,200 students. This means that the other three high schools' student population will fall below 3,000 and relieve the need for trailer classrooms.
Ardrey Kell, Myers Park, and South Mecklenburg High Schools are amongst the top rated high schools in the Charlotte Region. Ardrey Kell High is ranked #2 in the Charlotte region, while Myers Park High is ranked #9, and South Mecklenburg High is ranked #19.
