This School has the potential to be a Blue ribbon or red Carpet school if given the instruments to do. They are accredited by SACS and are a part of a rural consolidated districts that provide learning through quality technology based education both in and out of the classroom. They are recipients of the SC Dept. of Education Gold, Silver, and Bronze educational awards for Excellence, Achievement, and Growth Academically. They are well sound in sports as well.

I feel that this school has enormous potential to be one of the best in the district. With hard-work and determination from the administration, teachers and students this goal can be accomplished.
