    Richland One Mission Statement

    We are Richland One, a leader in transforming lives through education, empowering all students to achieve their potential and dreams.

    South Kilbourne Elementary School has done it again!

    South Kilbourne Elementary School was one of five South Carolina Schools, and one of 269 schools nationwide, to win a 2012 National Blue Ribbon School Award from the U.S. Department of Education and the S.C. Department of Education.  The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program honors public and private elementary, middle and high schools whose students achieve at very high levels or have made significant progress and helped close gaps in achievement, especially among disadvantaged and minority students. 

    Over the years, South Kilbourne has been in relentless pursuit of continuous improvement in curriculum and instruction so that effective teaching and learning take place in every classroom every day.  "South Kilbourne has an unwavering commitment to student success," said Richland One Superintendent Dr. Percy Mack.

    South Kilbourne is a Title I School that supports student achievement and teacher professional development.

    Richland One will prepare every student to be a successful, contributing citizen in a global society by providing an effective and high quality education.

    Dear Kangaroo Families, 


        Welcome to the opening of what promises to be a wonderful school year!  On behalf of the South Kilbourne Elementary Faculty and Staff, it is my pleasure to extend a warm and heartfelt welcome to you as we begin the 2016 - 2017 school year.    


        As an innovative educator, I believe we need to inspire learners to follow their passions by creating customized learning experiences based on student interests.  South Kilbourne Elementary is destined for amazing things. The gifts and talents of our students combined with the dedication and passion of our teachers allows us to create a diverse learning community where all students are pushed to maximize their potential.   


        As a new member of the South Kilbourne family, I want to take this opportunity to tell you a little about myself.  I have worked extensively in education since 2000.  My roles have included elementary teacher, technology specialist, assistant principal, and principal.   


        Throughout the year I look forward to meeting the new members of our community and connecting with returning community members.  It is my sincere hope that you will quickly feel at home and become involved in activities through the PTA and many classroom programs.  Together teachers, students, and parents make a strong South Kilbourne Family.  Working together as a team, we will continue to inspire our young kangaroos.   


        I am looking forward to an exciting and successful year at South Kilbourne Elementary as we embody “Kangaroo Pride”.   If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me at (803) 738-7215.  


    Yours in the Service of Learners,  

    Samantha Carlisle
