About this page:
Welcome to The Observer's interactive profiles of Charlotte-Mecklenburg schools. Select a school from the menu or the map, then click on the map button. (If nothing happens, make sure popups are enabled on your browser). Elementary, middle and high schools have separate pages and maps.
Each profile contains key data on test scores, demographics and what teachers and students say about the school. Note that additional links on each profile page offer comparisons of all schools, details on test scores and more information from CMS and the state.
Numbers never paint the full picture of school performance, but they can help parents and others ask smarter questions. If you're choosing a school, visits are vital; use the profiles to contact schools about opportunities.
