Long Description:
Charlotte High School was built in 1926 and opened in 1928 to educate children in school grades nine through twelve. Built to resolve the overcrowding in the current grammar schools, Charlotte High School was the first high school in Charlotte County.

Charlotte High School was added to the National Register of Historical Places in 1990 but in 2004, Hurricane Charley caused severe damage to the original building. Due to its historical importance, a full restoration is underway to preserve the Neo-classical structure.
