About Us

Greeleyville Elementary School was the first in our district to be recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School. In 2001 we added a First Steps Child Development class. In 2002 we were selected as a School of Promise Flagship winner by the SC Association of Administrators. We were among the first in the district to become a School-wide Title I school. Since 1998 Greeleyville Elementary has achieved deregulated status from the SDE, which allows the school to make site-based decisions.
 
We have been the recipient of numerous grants over the years, including a technology grant from Bridgestone Firestone, a 21st Century Learning Center Grant, the South Carolina READS Grant and numerous EIA Teacher Grants.
 
Most recently we were chosen to participate in the SC School Improvement Grant. We were one of only twelve schools selected in the state to participate in this project which incorporates behavior with reading achievement.

Students who are caught demonstrating the character word of the month receive stars from the faculty and staff. Each star is worth points that can be used to purchase rewards from the display case twice a year. Principal Sam Giles says, the mission of Greeleyville Elementary school, in collaboration with home and community, is to educate students to their fullest potential as they become respectful, responsible and competent citizens. Giles says, "We believe in having a warm and inviting environment for our students. We believe in providing teaching and learning ongoing throughout the day. We believe because of our after school program, we are able to provide our students a hot meal, but not only a hot meal we're able to give them enrichment as well as remediation." Sixth grade student Jadrian Huell says, "We get rewarded with stars, and we also get prizes from them. We have to be good at all times because we never know who is watching." Social studies teacher Alicia Oliver says, "We are a Cool School because we have students willing to learn. They come to school prepared everyday. We also have a food pantry here at GES where we help the community with healthy foods."
