About Us

Friends of Sullivan’s Island School was formed to provide financial support to Sullivan’s Island Elementary School in the areas of teacher salaries, instructional and educational supplies.

Each school in the Charleston County School District receives a mandated amount of funding based on certain strict formulas; however, that allocation does not meet the needs of our students.
Friends has helped bridge the gap between being a good school and a great school by providing funds to:

  • maintain smaller class sizes
  • lower overall student-to-teacher ratios
  • offer a rigorous and innovative curriculum
  • hire, retain and develop highly skilled faculty and professional staff, ensuring more special area teachers for foreign language, science, arts, music and computer technology.

Specifically, Friends provided funding for Full time technology,  Full time Spanish , Full Time Guidance and  Full time Intervention for the 2011-2012 school year. In addition, Friends funded two days each week of nursing services, in order for the students to have access to quality health care each day.
