    Subject & Grade Placements

    We do our best to match our corps members with their preferred subject area. However, subject assignment is based on a variety of internal and external factors. The primary factor of subject assignment is based on the needs of Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools and Guilford County Schools. That said, the highest need subject areas in our school districts are secondary mathematics, secondary science, Spanish, and elementary.
