This school really needs to be updated on this site. Murray Lasaine is in its 2nd year of the new Montessori program, and it is such a terrific place. We send our 4yo (primary Montessori) and 7yo (lower elementary Montessori) there, and we couldn't be happier. The teachers are wonderful, and the diverse student population is delightful and unique among James Island schools. Enrollment has doubled over the past two years to well over 300 students from the island. There is an active parent group and a very supportive principal and faculty. We are so lucky to have this public Montessori option in our neighborhood!
This is a community school! The staff and students work together to ensure learning. Teachers use Howard Gardner's multiple intelligences to teach all of the learning styles. Test scores are rising but it is a slow process due to the world around us. Enrollment is also on the rise! The students are respectful and have strong personalities! I love working at this school and I would recommend it to anyone.
