Greenville County Schools encourages parents to register for kindergarten and first grade for the 2020-2021 school year beginning December 3-6, 2019. We are preparing for your child to enter school in August 2020 and are so excited to have your child with us. By completing registration early, you will save time! It is important to register your child before school starts in August so we can ensure enough teachers and spaces are available at each school for incoming kindergarten and first grade students. Children who will be five years old on or before September 1, 2020 must enroll in kindergarten. 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.
Please bring the following items to register:
Photo ID from any state or country, State-issued Birth Certificate, Properly Completed Immunization Certificate or Religious Exemption Certificate,
Two Forms of Proof of Residence (two documents required such as a current utility bill and copy of lease agreement)
For your child’s school assignment and other information, visit the Kindergarten/First Grade Registration website or call INFOLine at 355-3100.
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.
The Palmetto Gold and Palmetto Silver Awards are based on criteria approved by the State Board of Education earlier this year and demonstrated performance on the 2018 and 2019 report cards.
The Amazing Shake is a competition that allowed our 5th grade students the opportunity to demonstrate manners, self-discipline, respect, and professional conduct. This was our first time planning such an event, and we were excited to have members of the community partner with us. The competition was completed in four rounds. For more details and a slide show, check out this link!
We are proud to be named for Mrs. Sara Collins, an exemplary volunteer and PTA mom! Enjoy this interview with her son, Mr. Eddie Collins.

Parents may provide a text-enabled phone number as the primary contact phone in PowerSchool. Please note that this text system is only to be used in emergency situations (including school closings) and not as a platform for regular school messages.
