Student Enrollment Process
Home School Information
Planning Services is responsible for developing school boundaries. Students are assigned to a home school based on their residential address. Each Mecklenburg County address has been assigned an elementary, middle and high school known as the home school. Students are automatically assigned to their home school upon enrollment. Transportation is provided to your home school. If you have questions about school boundaries or need your transportation zone, email your address to planning.
