Richland Two is a nationally recognized school district located in suburban Columbia, S.C., in the northeast section of Richland County. We are projected by the S.C. Department of Education to be the second fastest growing district in South Carolina over the next five years, with a current student population of about 17,000. We have 18 schools plus a child development center with satellite centers throughout the district, an alternative school, and several magnet programs at all grade levels.
In addition, the district has a tremendous tradition of excellence with 12 schools having won the U.S. Department of Education's Blue Ribbon Award award, with six of those schools winning it twice. We have had at least one Blue Ribbon School winner in six of the past seven years. The district has also been recognized in several national publications, including Money (January 1996) and Redbook (April 1996) magazines, The New York Times (March 24, 1993), and several others.
One of the district's greatest strengths is its ability to attract and retain a high caliber teaching staff. Nearly seven out of ten faculty members hold a master's or doctoral degree. Richland Two also works in close cooperation with the community with many established business partnerships, and hundreds of volunteers assisting in the district's daily operations.
Of course parental involvement is central to our success, and the district's active PTAs and PTOs, school improvement councils, school and district advisory councils and foundations provide the teamwork and support needed to maintain high educational standards
