Double Oaks Elementary School

1326 Woodward Avenue
Charlotte's All-Black Schools

Double Oaks School was built in the early 1950s to serve Double Oaks and the surrounding communities. Because of the building’s unique design, it won an architectural award soon after it was completed. At its peak, Double Oaks had over 750 students. The school was closed in 1981 and converted into a community center. In 1997, the school reopened as a preschool for four-year olds.
