Hough High School – Cornelius

William A. Hough High School opened on August 25, 2010 to meet the needs of the growing population in northern Mecklenburg County. It is built on land on Bailey Road in Cornelius. It’s a prototype for future high schools in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School system.

It consists of 99 classrooms along with a full array of athletic facilities. One of the unique features of our school is the fifteen rain gardens that dot the landscape. They filter run-off water through natural filters and then drain the water back into the creek which runs along the back of the property.

Hough High School is named after a former principal of North Mecklenburg High School; Mr. Hough served from September 1955 to July 1974 and was very much loved and respected by the people of this area.

Hough offers students a traditional North Carolina educational program. We offer Standard, Honors and Advanced Placement courses in each of the four core areas: English, Math, Science, and Social Studies. In addition, they offer a variety of elective courses for their students.
