Charleston County School District (CCSD) Board of Education: Bring a full Montessori School to Malcolm C. Hursey Elementary

    1. Petition by

      North Charleston Parents

North Charleston citizens deserve the same school choice options available to Charleston Country Residents in Mount Pleasant, Downtown, and West Ashley.

Residents of Park Circle overwhelmingly support this option as a way to promote School Choice and close the achievement gap.

Hursey is surrounded by 4 other traditional schools within a few miles that have higher ratings than Hursey, so families seeking a traditional education environment will not be slighted.

We, the undersigned, ask the CCSD Board of Education to bring full Montessori partial magnet education to Malcolm C. Hursey Elementary School.

      I am the parent of three small boys, and am in Hursey's attendance zone. My 4 year old has been in the Montessori program at Hursey since last year, and my twins will be starting next year. To Rev. Collins, Ms. Moffly, and Mr Ducker; I vote. I vote in every election and so does my husband. I talk about politics with friends and family. You three have lost our votes. Your decision last night HURTS my children and my neighborhood. Shame on you.

      If it were not for this school, my daughter would not have had the Montessori education that she is receiving because I cannot afford private Montessori school tuition and the waiting list at the district 20 school in our area was prohibitive. We chose to drive out of district because this school was able to accommodate our daughter at the age of four--when otherwise she would not have even had a preschool! Keep the number of students that Hursey can accommodate in the Montessori program high by making it 100% Montessori and give this district's students the same opportunities other districts receive in school choice.
