South Carolina Chapter

Chapter Mission

The commitment of the professional membership has been the key to the success of the Association for Learning Environments. We must now build on this tradition by increasing our membership to include sectors now under-represented within the organization. Increasing membership from the communities we serve to include minorities and urban school personnel.

Jackson Creek Elementary School Please join us for a tour of Jackson Creek Elementary School, an innovative K-5 school grounded in a Growth Mindset, meaning that all children have strengths and can learn to build on these strengths.

This school, inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright's style and stained glass windows, highlights the colored flags of the International Boulevard area where the school is sited. Designed for flexibility, 21st century learning and collaboration, this elementary school's unique design features grade levels grouped in "neighborhoods" where a central 'learning hub" area is shared by a group of 5 to 6 classrooms.

"This is an innovative space – we are the Jackson Creek Investigators. The school is designed for children to investigate and collaborate. This is an important part of our school because this is an essential quality in 21st century learning and the expectations of the SC graduates." – Principal Sabina Mosso-Taylor
