Sullivan’s Island Elementary provides a safe, caring, and academically challenging learning environment with the guidance of our school vision: To grow inquiry-based learners equipped with the skills to explore and contribute as stewards of our world and environment.
Nestled just behind a maritime forest and directly adjacent to the Atlantic Ocean, our school is a Constituent Magnet with the school-wide theme of Coastal Environment Studies. Through the coastal environment lens, students engage in authentic math and science experiences in two specialized wet labs, explore the adjoining nature trail/beach, and develop a sense of independence and responsibility in our school garden. Students regularly create models, work in groups to solve problems and share their ideas through speaking, writing, drawing, and technology. Our three coastal environment teachers work closely with classroom teachers to focus on cross-disciplinary science instruction.
Special Area classes at Sullivan’s Island Elementary include a Spanish Exposure program, art, music, physical education, coastal environment, and technology.
