A Message from Our Superintendent


Greenwood School District 50 continues to help all students develop the world class skills of the Profile of the South Carolina Graduate by providing a high quality education to every student in our district. Our top notch faculty and staff are one of the main reasons we continue to be successful, helping to carry out our vision to prepare tomorrow’s leaders together. 


Our district saw significant improvement in several areas of the 2022-2023 state assessments. I’m proud to say that our district's growth has been significant in the past couple of years. While we aren’t where we want to be, we are getting better. Our faculty and staff work hard every day and showcase dedication to help improve assessment results and ultimately help our students learn.


Greenwood School District 50 had three schools (Mathews Elementary School, Merrywood Elementary School, and Hodges Elementary School) rated as Excellent and two schools (Dr. Benjamin E. Mays Elementary School and Westview Middle School) rated as Good on the State Report Cards released in 2023. We are very excited about these ratings with 9 of our schools improving. Our district continues to show significant improvement in several of the performance indicators. These ratings would not have been possible without the hard work of our students, teachers and staff.


In D50, we have so much to be proud of from our academic achievements to our extracurricular activities to our athletics to the daily learning happening in our schools. We look forward to continuing to work with our community, our students, our staff, our board, and our parents to produce college and career ready graduates. We believe Greenwood School District 50 is stronger when we all work together.
