Thank you for visiting Memminger Elementary, School of Global Studies: A College of Charleston University Partnership

Memminger School of Global Studies is helping all students develop world class academic and life skills along with characteristics of the Profile of the South Carolina Graduate by focusing on three major initiatives: the International Baccalaureate Program, Social Emotional Learning, and Personalized Learning to meet, motivate and support all students’ needs.

 As a candidate school in the International Baccalaureate (IB) Program, Memminger is quickly shifting the methods by which we traditionally teach.  The students and teachers are part of collaborative effort of learning that includes inquiry, discovery, and knowledge.  As part of the IB program, students in all grades (CD3-5th) begin to understand and live the Learner Profile by demonstrating what is means to be “balanced, open-minded, principled, and caring.”

 Memminger School of Global studies is the only school in the district in its second year of implementation of providing a school-wide, Social/Emotional Learning (SEL) curriculum.  The research based, data driven program Second Step is taught by school counselors to support the SEL core competencies that Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) has identified: Self-awareness, Self-management, Social-awareness, Relationship skills, and Responsible decision making.   Second Step is used as a foundation for which students are thriving to be self-directed in their learning

As part of Personalized Learning, students and teachers at Memminger, through teamwork, have been able to increase the rigor and challenge in the classroom.  Teachers lead the classroom in personalized learning and have ownership in their growth and pace of instruction.  Personalized Learning is a way of mastery for the students to navigate the learning process and the ability to move through the state standards.

IB News
In June of this year, the CCSD School Board granted Memminger permission to begin the application process to become an International Baccalaureate (IB) focus school. Our administrative team, along with parents and community members, are moving forward with the application. The process to become an IB school takes an average of 3 years. The 3 year process will include IB training for our teaching staff. We hope to be fully accredited by the beginning of the 2016-17 school year.
