FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) –Two programs are expanding into two different schools in Florence School District One. Leaders said those programs will help more students excel in the classroom.

Recently the board of education decided to expand the Montessori program at McLaurin Elementary. As of right now the program is only offered to a select few students, but come next school year it will be offered school-wide.

“It’s an individual approached for the children where the teacher teaches students when they are ready for the lessons instead of the whole class moving at one time. It is done on an individual basis when the children are ready,” McLaurin Principal Deborah Cribb said.

Also, starting next school year, North Vista Elementary School will begin teaching students using techniques from the Primary Year program International Baccalaureate program.

It is geared toward teaching students to be internationally minded in each learning subject they study, so it’s more of a layered technique.

“If you are a parent and students goes here they will be taught a curriculum that will hopefully help them compete for jobs in not only the local market, but also in the international market as well,” said North Vista Elementary School Principal Sharon Dixon.
