Welcome to Sanders-Clyde Creative Arts School, home of the GATORS! We are so happy to share information with you as we march Full STEAM Ahead! We plan to accelerate our students into more rigorous coursework with a school-wide STEAM focus: Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math. Our personalized learning model will individualize instruction for every student. This focus will prepare our scholars for the global economy of the Charleston area, our nation, and the world.
Our standards-driven curriculum is delivered during the school day organized around a schedule which provides extended time for our scholars. Students also participate in daily periods for physical education, music, art, dance, theater, Spanish, and computer applications. Our school-wide focus on literacy equips our scholars with the skills necessary to be effective communicators, creative problem-solvers, critical thinkers and collaborators.
We hold the expectation that all of our scholars will attend college or specialized training after high school graduation. We know that our goals will only be reached through strong partnerships with parents, community members, volunteers, and staff working together to make dreams come true! To reinforce this expectation, our teachers have common planning times daily to collaborate and plan instruction that is engaging and challenging for students. We are committed to providing our scholars with the latest technology while also focusing on the development of leadership skills through service learning, clubs, and after-school enrichment. By working together, our GATORS will rise!
We strive to provide a safe, secure, and positive atmosphere conducive to reaching our goals by modeling our expectations through PRIDE - Positivity, Respect, Integrity, Determination and Excellence. Through these expectations, we are confident our GATORS will demonstrate GATOR PRIDE at Sanders-Clyde! We welcome and appreciate your support.
