Philip Simmons Middle School

District: Berkeley   /  Site Since 2017

Philip Simmons Middle School is beginning its fourth year in a newly built community school in the Berkeley County School District that serves the diverse communities of Cainhoy, Huger, and Wando. Philip Simmons Middle School was created as a Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) school with a focus on the transdisciplinary approach to education. In its second year, (2017) Philip Simmons Middle School became an Arts in Basic Curriculum School and South Carolina Department of Education Distinguished Art Program Grant School. Our school is named in memory of the famous Charleston blacksmith Philip Simmons and his innovative ironwork. We currently serve over 400 students from 5th to 8th grade. Our school and its teachers have been collaborating with Clemson University and the S2TEM Center of South Carolina since inception to develop strong STEAM instruction. In the famous words of Philip Simmons, “if you want your prayers answered, get up off your knees and hustle.”
