Pine Lake Preparatory is a public charter school located in Mooresville, North Carolina, educating students in grades K-12. PLP was founded in 2006 and started with Kindergarten, first, and second grades, and opened its doors to 1300 students in grades K-11 in 2008. PLP’s Upper School students choose a fine arts discipline (orchestra, band, visual art, theatre, and chorus) to study for their four years. In 2013, engineering was added to the curriculum due to influence from FIRST FRC Team SPORK. In addition to the three schools, the campus includes a Fine Arts Building, Athletic and Community Center, and will have a STEM building in the Fall of 2016.
