The Palmetto School at the Children’s Attention Home serves children who have been removed from their home by DSS for reasons of abuse, abandonment, or neglect, and reside at the on campus shelter, The Children’s Attention Home. We also serve children who reside at other local shelters such as Pilgrim’s Inn, Family Promise and Safe Passage. Our students are in kindergarten through 8th grade. The Palmetto School is a Fine arts 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 twelfth 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.
