The five new energy positive FirstFloor Horry County schools (Socastee Middle School, Socastee Elementary School, St. James Intermediate School, Ten Oaks Middle School, and Myrtle Beach Middle School) were all designed strategically to make an economical and environmental impact–but one of the largest impacts they are making since opening their doors is on the students themselves. Learn more about the three main differences the Horry County schools are making here.
FirstFloor Horry County Schools: Student Impact
IMPACT 3: Overall School Pride. Lastly, the FirstFloor Horry County schools have already seen a difference in student involvement and overall pride. We feel that walking into a new, beautifully designed building that is crafted to make an impact on the environment (while also having so many fun features) creates a more inclusive space and improves overall behavior and performance. Additionally, the sizes of the schools allow for more students to get involved in extracurriculars, so they can be a part of representing the school and hopefully feel more proud of their community. An impact like that can make all the difference.
