Just wait. Folks in Mint Hill will have their hair on fire over CMS’ latest boundary plans for the new “Mint Hill” high school. All of the options make the new school more of a “Plaza Road” centered school than one populated by Mint Hill area kids.
The intent of Mint Hill leaders was for the new school to function as a Mint Hill school in the same way Butler is primarily a Matthews school. Independence, they hoped, would be shifted to more a middle-ring school with everything between Garinger and Hwy. 51. Hasn’t worked out that way in this latest round of proposals from CMS staff, all of which stretch Indy’s zone all the way to the county line.
