The research is clear. School districts across the country offering choices have greater parent involvement, more engaged learners, and a higher quality of education. In Charleston County, each school-aged child is assigned to a neighborhood school based on grade level and home address. In addition, CCSD also offers other dynamic choices, including specialized programs, magnets, and charter schools.
