Campus and facilities edit

Built in the similar style as its sister school, Ardrey Kell High School, Mallard Creek is a three-story, pre-cast concrete building, surrounding a large central courtyard. The school is located near the I-485 belt loop in Mecklenburg County, and the Highland Creek community. The concrete is colored in certain exterior areas to represent the school's colors: navy blue, cardinal red, and Vegas gold. At over 351,000 square feet (32,600 m2), it is one of the largest single-school buildings in the Piedmont area of North Carolina, and the largest school in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School District. The school has a football stadium (with a turf field), a baseball–softball complex, and a large gymnasium, as well as an adjoining practice gymnasium, tennis courts, and soccer fields. The school shares practice fields and the athletic stadium with nearby Mallard Creek Community Park, and local community athletic groups.

Athletics edit

Mallard Creek's teams are known as the "Mavericks". The school is a part of the North Carolina High School Athletic Association (NCHSAA) and competes in the I-Meck 4A athletic conference.[2]

The school's football team won three straight NCHSAA 4AA State Championships in 2013, 2014, and 2015. The boys track and field team won the Outdoor NCHSAA 4A State Championship in 2015.
