Robert F. Kennedy Middle
4000 Gallant Lane, Charlotte, N.C. 28273
Principal: Alicia McCree Springs
Kennedy Middle is a magnet school with smaller than average class sizes for grades 6 and 7, and an average size for grade 8. As a result, teachers are able to provide students more personal attention. The Kennedy Middle motto is “Striving for Excellence,” and administration and staff share a vision to become one of the top-performing middle schools in the school system.
Olympic Community of Schools
4301 Sandy Porter Road, Charlotte, N.C. 28273
Olympic Community of Schools joined the Coalition of Essential Schools in 2005 with funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Olympic is divided into five small, theme-based schools: The School of Biotechnology, Health and Public Administration; The School of International Business and Communication Studies; The School of International Studies and Global Economics; The School of Math, Engineering, Science and Technology; and The Renaissance School.
Four of Olympic’s schools were recently named to Newsweek Magazine’s “Best High Schools in America” list, and The School of Math, Engineering, Technology and Science was in the top 200.
