    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.

    From the Principal: Dr. Linda Norton

    Welcome to South Kilbourne Elementary School!

    I am so honored to be the new principal of a school where great things happen every day!  It has been a pleasure to meet and get to know the students, parents, families, and business partners that make up this wonderful community. I am especially pleased to be part of a faculty and staff committed to providing the best possible education for every child in a safe, nurturing environment. I look forward to building on this tradition of academic excellence!

    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!


    Your Principal,


    Linda Norton, Ed.D.
