School Profile

Jennie Moore Elementary (JME) is a partial magnet school for the Creative Arts, serving a diverse socio-economic and multicultural population in the East Cooper area.

Beginning with the 2002-2003 school year, we implemented a program of arts infusion into our curriculum. With this program, we continue to base all instruction on the South Carolina State Standards while integrating the learning across the curriculum using the arts. Our success can be attributed to the hard work and determination of our teachers, our students, our staff, and our parents. We welcome and need your input and support to accomplish the goals set forth in our School Renewal Plan.

Visitors are always welcome. For the safety of our students and staff, all visitors, including parents, relatives and friends, are required to sign in with the front office and to wear a visitor's pass.
