Welcome to the Edgefield County School District – one of the best-kept secrets in South Carolina!

Edgefield is a family-oriented district with a strong sense of community in each school.  We are proud to tout many great attributes about our schools such as small student to teacher ratios; competitive teacher salaries; award winning sports programs; one-to-one technology devices; a dynamic arts program; and a variety of Career and Technology Education courses to serve the needs of our students.

We are also proud of the community of Edgefield County that demonstrated overwhelming support for the school system by voting to pass a bond referendum in November 2018.  Funds from the referendum will be used to provide security upgrades and renovations for six of our schools; provide expansions in three of our schools; and will also provide a new auditorium, gymnasium, and practice track at Strom Thurmond High School.

Preparing our students to be ready for the future that awaits them is our number one focus.  Our mission is, “Growing World Class Citizens by Engaging, Empowering and Enriching ALL Learners,” which is something we take to heart each and every day. 

Whether you’re a parent, potential student, potential employee, or business partner – we encourage you to visit our schools in person to see the dynamic instructional programs we offer to the children of Edgefield County.

If I may be of assistance to you, please do not hesitate to contact me.
