Showcase of Schools

 December 5 event to highlight Richland One schools, programs


In Richland One, our core business is learner success. While success in school is most often viewed through academic lenses, Richland One recognizes that in order for our students to achieve their potential and dreams, the needs of the whole child must be considered. With the whole child in mind, we are proud to offer a vast array of programs and opportunities to meet the intellectual, social and emotional needs of students in pre-kindergarten through grade 12.


Regardless of the zip code in which a student lives, the district is committed to ensuring equity and access to high-quality learning experiences and opportunities for every student. Rigorous instructional programs based on South Carolina Standards and district-developed curricula are provided in each school and are supported through evidence-based interventions within the school day, as well as before or after school. In addition to high-quality core academic instruction, each school provides opportunities in visual and performing arts, world languages, physical education and health. Learning experiences within the classroom are often enhanced through field and virtual learning experiences.


Specialized programs are provided in each school. Students with disabilities benefit from opportunities designed to meet their individual needs. Advanced Academic Programs, as well as those for the artistically gifted, are provided in every school. Students at the middle and high school levels may participate in career and technology education (CATE) courses that are aligned to national industry standards. Simply stated, every effort is made to ensure that learning is relevant and engaging to ensure each student graduates college or career ready.


From leadership development, language immersion, Montessori, project-focused and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics)-based learning, to entrepreneurship, health science and the culinary arts, Richland One also offers choice programs that are designed to meet the needs of each student and nurture students’ talents, interests and aptitudes, while we prepare them to live and work in a diverse global society.
