McCormick Elementary School is committed to providing a safe and nurturing environment where all children can learn and succeed. We maintain high expectations for academic achievement, personal responsibility, and respect. Our school, with a staff of approximately 45 and a student body population of approximately 390,  offers an educational program that provides each student with opportunities to excel academically, mentally, emotionally and socially. Teachers are cognizant of the different needs and learning styles of students. We employ appropriate instructional strategies and practices to deliver a curriculum that is carefully aligned to the South Carolina College and Career Ready Standards for Reading, Writing and Math. Science and Social Studies instruction is closely aligned to the South Carolina State Standards.   Students receive one hundred and twenty minutes of instruction in reading and one hundred minutes in math.  Teachers implement an interactive approach to reading and writing across the curriculum through Balanced Literacy.  Research-based, high-yield instructional strategies are also implemented to enhance teaching and learning.  Computer-assisted instruction is also used to provide differentiatiation in the different content areas. Positive Behavioral Interventions and Strategies (PBIS) are used to improve student academic and behavioral outcomes.   Parents are actively involved in their child's education through organizations such as PTO, School Improvement Council, Title I School-wide committee, the Superintendent's Parent Advisory Council and the Strategic Planning Committee. McCormick has been accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools for many years. McCormick Elementary partners with staff, families, and the community to best serve the needs of our students.
