GRAND STRAND IS NOT ONLY ABOUT GOLF AND VACATIONS ~

St. James High School to receive National Award

Stop and think a minute ~ Do you know how many high schools there are in the United States ~

There are about 24,000 high schools in the United States of which 1,200 in 30 states and the District of Columbia use the framework of High Schools That Work Goals and Key Practices. HSTW is an
initiative of the Southern Regional Education Board and is the nation's largest school improvement initiative for high school leaders and teachers.

When I discovered one of the local schools was going to receive a National Award, I felt very proud ~ After further research about the National Award, I found that St. James High School will be recognized at the 2011 High Schools That Work Summer Staff Development Conference in Nashville, Tennessee, on July 20th

To be one of the 13 schools to receive this award is quite outstanding, especially when this area is thought to be more for retirees than families with school age children.

People are known to retire to this area for the beautiful beaches, wonderful sunny climate, relaxed living styles, assorted attractions, entertainment, and conveniences, but the area is also considered to be a prime location for raising a family with multiple opportunities for employment due to the continuing growth in the Grand Strand Area. The largest source of employers in the Horry County area lies within the school districts with over 4870 employees. The second largest is Wal-Mart with over 2061 employess.

St. James High School's receiving of this prestigious national award demonstrates that the "Grand Strand" is not only for vacationers and retirees, but also a great place to raise a family.

Kudos to your area, the students, teachers, and the resident's commitment to good education!  This is truly something to be proud of and broadcast too.  Guiltily, I must admit ... I dream of your golf courses too though ...

Gene ~ We are so honored and want to boast the schools are great too!!  The golf courses brought Frank to this area over ten years ago with all his fellow firemen from FDNY ~ He loved the area and said when he retires, this is where he wants to be ~ No more dreaming, now it's a reality ~

What an important post for localism... facts about the area that folks really need to know. We always extensively researched the schools when moving so we would concentrate our search near the schools we liked the best. I don't think most people think of that.

Gretchen ~ We extensively searched for excellent school districts when we move from New Jersey to Upstate New York when Frank went on the FDNY ~

Carolina Forest school district in Myrtle Beach is also an excellent school district ~
