1. Garinger High School High school

Garinger High School (or simply, Garinger) is a high school located in the Shamrock area of Charlotte, North Carolina. Founded in 1959, it was one of the oldest remaining schools in Charlotte. Garinger was in essence the relocation of Central High School, Charlotte's first high school. That school was founded in 1909 as Charlotte High School and renamed Central High in 1923. Central Piedmont Community College now stands where Central High once stood; one of CPCC's main buildings is known as the Central High building (and was formerly called the Garinger building). The school is named for Dr. Elmer H. Garinger, a former superintendent of the Charlotte City Schools.
