James Island Elementary School Reviews

1 review
I love the new Principle (former principle of St. Andrews Math and Science) bc she has fresh, innovative, research-based ideas for getting the community to gather at and around the school. The teachers love her, too! She has only been here 3yrs and has hired great teachers to reduce class ratios to 16:1, drastically improved scores. School Couselor and Librarian (2018 nominee-Teacher of the Year) are amazing! We have: Kinesthetic Seating, Garden, and Outdoor Classroom Projects, Brain Breaks, yoga, and Active Based Learning allowing kids to move. Tennis, Dance, Soccer, Coding, Lego, and Spanish classes offered after school. Brand New County Library is steps away!
