Nexton Elementary opened in 2015. And it has already earned high praise. Rookie School of the Year from the South Carolina PTA. An achievement award from the Medical University of South Carolina/Boeing Center for Children’s Wellness. The region's only Common Sense Digital Leadership School. From coding clubs to veggie gardens, Nexton Elementary scores an A+ for smarts and innovation.
It’s been estimated that over half of today’s grade-school students will end up in jobs that haven’t been invented yet. So it’s a good thing Nexton Elementary is part of SC’s first gigabit community, creating the possibility for learning experiences that we’ve only begun to imagine. Add in tablet computers for every student, a coding club and a digital citizenship program, and you have a school that’s preparing students for whatever the future may hold.
Good things happen when kids walk or bike to school. They make new friends, get more exercise and take more responsibility for themselves. (They also make life easier for Mom and Dad.) Our point is that the best schools are the ones that are good and close. Which is one more reason why neighborhood schools are a big deal in Nexton.
