Congratulations to the Five Schools in South Carolina that were awarded the  2010 National Blue Ribbon Schools award. Howe Hall Arts Infused Magnet in Goose Creek and Charles Pinkney Elementary School in Mt. Pleasant two Lowcountry schools honored.

National Blue Ribbon Schools are models of excellence that other schools can emulate, and have proved superior academic achievement or dramatic gains in student achievement. Schools must have either 40% of their students from disadvantaged backgrounds and show dramatic improvement on test scores, or regardless of demographics, the school must perform in the top 10% of schools in the state.

 

 

Charles Pinckney serves 975 students in grades 3-5, and has consistently achieved excellent absoulute performance ratings on its school report card. School leaders say their sucess lies in a belief that all children can learn and excel.

Howe Hall serves 422 students in grades K-5 with a poverty level of 46%. School administrators believe the arts education students receive is a key ingredient in their success. The School's level of achievement in academics and arts is among the highest in the state on assessments.

The other schools in South Carolina that were awarded the Blue Ribbon include Ballentine Elementary in Irmo ,Greeenville Technical Charter High School in Greenville, and Powdersville Elementary in Greenville.

Congratulations to all the winners! Keep up the good work!
