Principal's Message


At Blacksburg Elementary School we treasure every student that walks through our doors and believe that each one can be a success story. As the principal of Blacksburg Elementary School, I realize that student achievement cannot take place without great teaching. An important part of my job is to attract and retain enthusiastic and ambitious teachers and educational staff members. I believe we have the best staff in the entire county, if not the state of South Carolina. BES teachers participate in a variety of professional-development opportunities that strengthen skills and foster innovative teaching methods and concepts that improve instruction. We have the resources and expertise to identify the strengths and unique needs of each student while providing a learning environment that is challenging, enriching and supportive. Our focus at BES is on the development of the total student-academically, culturally and socially.
