Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools
William A. Hough High School
The new 258,000-square-foot high school is situated on 60 acres of land in Cornelius, North Carolina. The main building is a two-story, steel structure with masonry skin. Inside there are 99 classrooms, which includes 16 science labs, and a 16,000-square-foot “super” gymnasium (load-bearing masonry and steel structure) that can be divided into two separate courts.
Outside there is a sports complex with athletic fields, running track, and eight tennis courts. Fifteen rain gardens (bioretention areas) protect the property by preventing erosion and runoff.
