Any projected new schools for the South Charlotte area?

I read one article saying they are looking at building a K-8 school at the old Golf Links Dr. area to accommodate the new Waverly sub-division. I don't know if that is still in the works or not.

But between that huge development (500 new homes between apartments and homes/townhomes) and all the other new developments going in, I don't know where the kids will go to school!

Anyone know any updates on building projects for schools?

I think the Golf Links school is a Charter school but could be wrong

Thanks for the info. Looks like I asked just a couple of days after the article. Good timing.

I still don't think it will be enough, particularly since most of what is listed is renovations and not new construction or additions.

It will be interesting to see.

And I would be curious about the school to relieve South Meck and Ardrey Kell and what location they are considering.
