Description: Little Mountain Elementary School is in the southeastern section of Newberry County and serves 396 students in grades K through 5. All grade levels provide students with balanced literacy instruction which includes reading, researching, and writing across the curriculum. Hands-on experiences from FOSS, AIMS, and GEMS enrich math and science programs. A wide variety of texts and computer programs enhance learning in all areas of the school's curriculum. Regular use of rubrics have helped improve students' writing. The school's leadership/data analysis team regularly analyzes tests data in order to monitor students' progress and to assist teachers in designing classroom experiences that meet students' needs.
The majority of teachers have advanced degrees while others are working toward this goal. Our teachers participate in many professional development opportunities in a variety of areas. These professional discussions provide opportunities for teachers to generate conversations related to applying best practices across the grade levels. The school has initiated PBIS as a behavioral management structure. There is also an after school program to assist students with increased achievement.
Our faculty works diligently to enable our students to enjoy and appreciate the arts through field trips, assemblies, and community involvement. Students participate in many school-to-work activities. Parents and community members further educate students by sharing experiences about their jobs during our career fair. Little Mountain Elementary School, the PTO, and the community work hard to keep our students continuously learning in a safe and caring environment.
