Lakes & Bridges Charter School opened August 2018 with the most exceptional team of educators ever assembled in a South Carolina public school.
Most Lakes & Bridges students come from Pickens, Anderson, Greenville, and Oconee Counties. The school’s daily schedule supports the mission to empower students to achieve the academic, technical, and social skills necessary to accomplish further educational and career goals. Students are immersed in multisensory instruction in every subject area throughout the school day. In addition to English Language Arts instruction daily, students have Personalized Instruction and Enrichment (PIE) small group instruction daily.
Lakes & Bridges students work in leveled Math groups. Students may be working on developmental foundational levels or advanced math concepts. Math U See curriculum will be used.
Science and Social Studies follow SC standards and are taught in alternating four-week blocks.
Movement breaks are crucial for maintaining attention for learning, so every student has 45-minutes of scheduled movement classes daily in addition to a recess.
Lakes & Bridges utilizes The Leader in Me to teach 21st-century leadership and life skills to students to create a culture of student empowerment based on the idea that every child can be a leader.
Wednesday afternoons after lunch are devoted to activities for students to Learn, Experience, Apply and Participate (LEAP) in various activities and clubs that extend and enrich classroom instruction.
All Lakes & Bridges staff members are required to participate in the Orton-Gillingham Associate Level training during the last two weeks in June. There is no cost for the training for employees. There may also be more required professional development during the summer, as well as ongoing professional development throughout the school year.
Salary and medical benefits will be similar to local school districts. Employees will have a retirement plan; however, the SC Retirement System will not be offered.
