High school is a name used in some parts of the world, and particularly in North America, to describe the last segment of compulsory secondary education. In the United States, high schools generally consist of grades 9, 10, 11, and 12, although the inclusion of grade 9 varies by school district. Corey Garinger High School is a high school located in the Shamrock area of Charlotte, North Carolina. Founded in 1959, it is one of the oldest remaining schools in Charlotte. Garinger is in essence the relocation of Central High School, Charlotte's first high school. Central Piedmont Community College now stands where Central High once stood. One of CPCC's main buildings is known as the Central High building. Jo Ella Ferrell is the principal for the school.
In early 2006 the school found it threatened with closure by the State of North Carolina, but has received backing from the City of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County. Garinger's feeder schools are Briarwood Elementary, Devonshire Elementary, Hickory Grove Elementary, Merry Oaks Elementary, Shamrock Gardens Elementary, Windsor Park Elementary, and Winterfield Elementary. The corresponding middle schools are Cochrane Middle School, and some students from Eastway Middle School and Northridge Middle School.
Garinger is located in northeast Charlotte at 1100 Eastway Drive. The campus can also be accessed from Shamrock Drive or East Sugar Creek Road. Garinger's campus was designed by AG Odell, junior and associates, who also designed several other famous buildings in Charlotte. The campus covers roughly 63 acres and consists of several detached buildings, many of which have interior courtyards. Near the center of campus sits a unique round building with a conical roof, which served as the original library. It has since been converted into classroom space and much of the interior integrity has been lost. A new two-story library was added in the 1970s. 

The football, soccer, tennis, track, cross country, and baseball teams has struggled greatly in recent years. Garinger's most competitive sports are men's and women's basketball. The small 600 seat gymnasium at the school is often packed to the rafters when the Wildcats take on traditional rivals West Charlotte HS and Independence HS. The mission of Garinger High School is to provide their students with opportunities to obtain the skills needed to become productive, responsible citizens, capable of making positive contributions to a changing society.
