As parents, we want the best possible education for our children. So, it just might be that those who are looking to live in the Charlotte Metro area have to go south of the border for the best school districts. In 2016, school districts right across the state line took the top 3 spots for best school districts in the Charlotte Metro.
Finishing at the top is Fort Mill School District, at #2 is York School District, and in the #3 spot is Clover School District followed by Union County Public Schools in NC. Ranking factors include state test scores, college readiness, graduation rates, SAT/ACT scores, teacher quality, and student and parent reviews.
Both high schools in Fort Mill rank among the best in the state and in the nation according to a U.S. News 2016 report. There are a list of additional achievements and accolades to add to the list. Fort Mill High principal Dee Christopher was named 2016 South Carolina High School Principal of the Year and Dr. Chuck Epps was named Superintendent of the Year in 2014 by SCASA.
