The E.E. Waddell High School building will be restored as a high school for the 2022-2023 school year. The building has been occupied by the South Academy of International Languages (SAIL), which is moving into its new building for the 2021-2022 school year.


Update – June 8, 2021

The vote on the future of E.E. Waddell High School has been delayed to no later than June 2022. The adjusted timing allows for additional community engagement related to the programs for Waddell, and allows us to consider relief scenarios for Myers Park and South Meck which include the new South Charlotte Relief HS.  As a result, Waddell will open in the fall of 2023 instead of fall 2022.
