1. improve test scores
2. improve the graduation rate
3. improve reading
4. improve facilities
5. improve transportation
6. improve communications
7. expand our offerings both in academic and vocational programs.
We want to provide a safe environment in our schools conducive to learning. We want our students and employees to feel safe in our buildings. We operate our schools efficiently using Total Quality Management System concepts to guide our efforts. Our goal is to prepare our students for opportunities they may have in the future.
In curriculum we are emphasizing STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), reading proficiency at all levels, and Career and Technology courses. We recently added courses in Fire Fighting and Automotive Technology. Our teachers receive professional development through the TAP model (Teacher Advancement Program). Every instructional strategy and every initiative aligns to the South Carolina Profile of a College and Career Ready student. We welcome you to come visit our School District.
