Open Quote This was recognized by the United States Department of Education as a 2010 National Blue Ribbon School. There were only (5) five schools that recieved this honor within the State of South Carolina and the only one in Charleston County. Close Quote

Open Quote Charles Pinckney is one of the most outstanding schools in MT.Pleasant. It is a National Blue Ribbon School Of Excellence and has maintained an excellent school report card rating for years. The staff is highly professional, well trained, and truly cares about the students.
Academic acheivement is a huge focus at this school, which is why it produces such high performing students who go on to soar in Middle and High school (usually in honors and AP classes). However, don't let that fool you--the teachers still make sure the children have fun while learning, and they make sure the "whole child" grows during the years spent there.
Lastly, the principal runs a tight ship, but she really does listen when parents share concerns. The school has over 1000 students yet I am amazed at how many students'names the principal knows! Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
