About Our School


Education was obviously important in the small town of Huntersville; by 1878 it already had two schools.  Later, these schools were consolidated and became known as the "Academy." Students came from many states and even foreign countries to be educated at this institution. It was one of the first public schools in North Carolina to be designated as a state high school. The Academy was destroyed by a fire decades ago. Subsequently, in 1920 the Huntersville Agricultural Building was built, and still stands just east of the current Huntersville Elementary School.

Huntersville Elementary School is proud of its strong academic record.  HES was an A+ school for three years in a row!  In addition, Huntersville Elementary has been recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School. Our testing scores are in the top percentile in math, reading, and science. Many of our classroom teachers have advanced degrees and are National Board Certified.
