Elementary School Basics
The Columbia County School District has eighteen elementary schools, all fully accredited through AdvancEd.
We are extremely proud to be implementing the School-wide Enrichment Model (SEM) in all 18 elementary schools.
SEM focuses on enrichment for all students through high levels of engagement and the use of enjoyable and challenging learning experiences that are created around students' interests, learning styles, and preferred styles of expression.
One component of the SEM model is enrichment clusters that all eighteen elementary schools offer. Through these learning experiences, students practice photography, cooking, dance, golf, meteorology, web design, engineering, global awareness, and more.
Schools invite community members into the schools to explain how these interests and skills are integrated to career opportunities. Students are given the opportunity to share what they have learned in enrichment cluster fairs. We are excited to transform the learning experiences for students in all of our elementary schools through the implementation of SEM!
