A child who will be six years old on or before September 1, 2020 must enroll in first grade. Students who are currently enrolled in a GCS 4K or 5K program do not need to register.

Excellent Rating for SC Report Card

Sara Collins receives Excellent rating on the SC School Report Card!

We are so proud of our students and staff!

Below is the link to our School Report Card, released October 1, 2019 by the State Department of Education.  Based on a number of factors, each school in the state has been rated as excellent, good, average, below average, or unsatisfactory.  These report cards factor in multiple data points, test scores and surveys. The report attempts to measure a school’s academic achievement, student progress, college and career readiness and school climate. The reports will also include data on English Learners’ Progress, Student Safety, and Financial information. High School reports will factor in graduation rates. If you have any questions or concerns related to our school’s ratings, feel free to contact our principal via email or phone.
