Prospective Parent Open Houses

Welcome to Myers Park Traditional Elementary School, one of Charlotte's oldest
public schools with a distinguished 90+ year tradition. The Traditional/Leaadership magnet
experience for grades K-5 at MPTS successfully blends both tradition and new
innovation to prepare students and our future leaders for tomorrow. You will find information below that we hope will help guide you through the process of participating in our virtual Prospective Parent Open House event(s) and applying for a lottery seat via the CMS School Choice lottery.

We invite you to attend and learn more about MPTS at our Fall 2021 Open House
in-person events where you'll hear from our principal, teachers and parent representatives. 
The current schedule is as follows:

  • Thursday, October 21, 2021 at 9:30am
  • Thursday, October, 28, 2021 at 9:30am
  • Tuesday, November 2, 2021 at 6:00pm

Please note that masks are REQUIRED for all in-person Open House attendees. In addition, attendees will be required to register in advance.  Childcare will not be provided and we kindly ask that attendees make childcare arrangements for children unable to properly wear a mask.   

MPTS will offer a virtual Open House for those unable to attend our in-person events.  Please email for additional details. 

MPTS is a magnet school, therefore, all interested students must both enroll in CMS
