Principal's Message

Vicki Goude Welcome To Port Royal Elementary School!
Port Royal Elementary School is nestled in the heart of the town of Port Royal. We are in walking distance of historical landmarks, community resources, local businesses, and natural lowcountry habitats including the cypress wetlands and the Sands Beach. Students take advantage of these learning opportunities through experience-based inquiry projects.

Port Royal Elementary is South Carolina's second-oldest operating school. It first opened in 1911 as a two-room, two-story schoolhouse.  Over the years, our building has enjoyed many renovations, expansions, and technology upgrades.  Today, all students in grades PK through 5 have access to a personal technology device (PK-1st have ipads while grades 2-5 have tablets).

We are looking forward to the RESET of the 2021-2022 school year.  All students will participate in a face to face learning model.  Our goal is to help students thrive in academic achievement through building positive relationships using the Responsive Classroom model that will focus on social-emotional skill building as well as engaging academics.  Our teachers will implement engaging, standards-based lessons that build in project-based learning.  We are very excited to announce that this is the first year we will give every student hands-on inquiry-based learning activities in a weekly S.T.E.M. Lab.  Students will integrate science, technology, engineering, and mathematics to build 21st Century skills of communication, creativity, collaboration, critical thinking and problem solving. 

It is my honor and pleasure to lead the Mariners to staying on course: Destination Excellence!

Mrs. Vicki Goude, Principal
