History

New Technology High School at Garinger was established in 2006 as a part of the closing of Garinger High School in 2009. Modeled after the New Technology High School in Napa, California, the school opened in 2006 with a class of 91 ninth graders[2] and added a grade with each successive year. The school's first graduating class will be the class of 2010.

New Technology High School at Garinger is the result of a joint vision by Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools, The New Tech Network, the New Schools Project, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Campus

New Technology High School shares the Garinger campus with four other new small schools: Math and Science High School, International Studies High School, Business and Finance High School and Leadership and Public Services High School.
