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.
Our mission is to provide safe, caring, child-centered programs that meet the needs of families and schools. Our academically enriched extended day programs are interactive and engaging for children, which promotes life long learning.
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.

We welcome volunteers in our classrooms, activities and programs. Our teachers invite ongoing communication with families, and my door is always open if you have any questions or concerns that you would like to share. I appreciate your input, and I look forward to working with you and your child in these very important first years of school. Together, we will continue to provide South Kilbourne Elementary students with the best educational experience possible!
