Open Enrollment Guidelines

Sumter School District believes that all students can learn, but not every student learns in the same way. This year we have implemented an extension to our Open Enrollment process that allows for students to specifically apply for one of our two new Magnet Schools based upon the individual interest of the child and the school’s academic focus. Both schools are implementing powerful programs of study and character development.  Student names that are submitted through the Open Enrollment process will also be screened in the areas of behavior, attendance, and academic performance. 

At Cherryvale Elementary STEAM School, your child will be immersed in a curriculum that focuses on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math with a concentrated exposure to the Arts. Students at Cherryvale Elementary STEAM School will be empowered with the leadership and life-skills they need to thrive in the 21st century by embracing the Leader in Me leadership program concepts throughout each and every school day.
