Port Royal Elementary School has a long history of providing high-quality education to students. Through an engaging, personalized learning environment, students are encouraged to achieve success and develop a love for learning.
Through Project Based Learning, students engage in hands-on activities that are reflective of real-world challenges. This program encourages students to further explore subject areas and make meaningful connections between past knowledge and new concepts.
By promoting the academic and social-emotional development of each student, PRES helps students develop a strong academic foundation. Their holistic approach to education nurtures independent learning skills and encourages students to take responsibility for their own learning.
Project Based Learning
Students in grades Kindergarten, First, and Second are working to make our world a better place to live. Students created recycling projects, learned how composting benefits our soil and participated in hands-on ways to grow sustainable plants.
Students in the upper grades built on the skills learned in the lower grades through a gardening project and learned more about our Lowcountry water habitats and environmental conservation through oyster bed replenishment. Students partnered with local experts and conducted research on field trips.
Each year students in grades 4 and 5 participate in the River of Words Project. Students learn about our Lowcountry ecosystem and show what they know through creating visual art projects and literary poetry. Each year BCSD publishes a River of Words book to celebrate student work. PRES has an XPRESsions choir that entertains our families and community members at local festivals and school performances through song.
