• We aim to provide 21st century learning experiences for students by integrating technology across the curriculum throughout the day. We are especially excited about incorporating the SC Computer Science and Digital Literacy Standards which have been recently approved by the South Carolina Department of Education. Feel free to peruse those standards by clicking on the following link--> Click here. The content standards and the process standards work together to enable all students to develop the world class knowledge, skills, and life and career characteristics identified in the Profile of the South Carolina Graduate.
