CMS sees 102 students from StudentFirst

The abrupt closing of StudentFirst Academy charter school April 1 resulted in 102 students enrolling in Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools such as Ashley Park and Whitewater Middle, a CMS official said.

Three additional students enrolled in CMS for next year, to qualify for a magnet program, officials said.

StudentFirst opened last fall with 338 K-8 students, but closed while under investigation for allegations of financial mismanagement and academic irregularities. Mark Price
