The Palmetto School at the Children’s Attention Home serves children who reside at the Children’s Attention Home, Homeless Shelters, and children from the community who are at risk- academically, behaviorally, or emotionally. Our students are in kindergarten through 8th grade. The Palmetto School is a Fine Arts and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) school that integrates the arts to help students improve learning and heal from their Life’s trauma and situation. Most of our Fine Arts Staff are volunteers that have served our school for the past 6 years. The school also focuses on meeting the basic needs of the children while providing a solid, appropriate, individualized academic program. Utilizing classrooms with low teacher to student ratios, children are able to spend significant individual or small group time with the teacher. Considerable emphasis is placed on teaching the children the appropriate behavioral skills needed for them to prosper as students.
We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit entity, and over 60% of our operating budget comes from donations. Donations made to our school are tax deductible.
Currently, this is the 13th year of operation for The Palmetto School. Thanks to all of you who have volunteered, and those who have donated and continue to donate financial support and supplies for the school. As the school year continues, please keep checking our needs list for any additional supplies that we may need.
