In a recent announcement, Red Cedar was named a Palmetto’s Finest School by the SC Association of School Administrators, the state’s professional organization for school leaders. According to the announcement: “More than half of the school’s population is still learning English and 70 percent of the students qualify for free and reduced-price lunch.” The five-year-old school has improved its state academic rating from average to excellent.”
More than 80% of the students in NOC’s after school program at the Bluffton House and Simmons Cay Program Centers attend Red Cedar Elementary School. NOC has served nearly 100 children annually from Red Cedar over the past four years. Dr. Kathleen Corley, Principal of Red Cedar Elementary School, commented to Joan Deery, NOC Board member, “…our partnership with NOC is a big part of our success…”
NOC is making a difference!
