We are a growing network of free, public charter school providing a high-quality educational choice to families across Charlotte. We opened our first campus in West Charlotte in 2017 and will open our second campus in East Charlotte in 2020. We emphasize academics and virtue, believe in the inherent value and dignity of all children, and are excited to build something amazing with our students and families.
History & Founders
In the fall of 2017, Movement School proudly opened its doors and welcomed our inaugural class of 300 students in Kindergarten, First Grade, and Second Grade to our Freedom Drive campus. The school will grow one grade per year until we reach K-8. In the fall of 2020 we will launch Movement School Eastland, our second school, welcoming 200 Kindergarten and First Graders to its campus in East Charlotte. This school will grow one grade per year until we reach K-6.

“Our goal is to help each student become as special as she can be as an individual -- not to be more special than the kid sitting next to her.”
