About Us

L. W. Conder Elementary School continues a legacy of excellence and the distinction of being the only arts magnet school in Richland School District Two. Our motto is Students Through The Arts Reach Success. We are an Arts in Basic Curriculum (ABC) Advancement site, and in our fifth year of this partnership. Also in partnership with the South Carolina Arts Commission and the State Department of Education Distinguished Arts Program ( DAP) , Conder teachers participated in intensive and on-going professional development in arts integration. Teachers use arts integration strategies in everyday classroom instruction. Teachers, students, and parents participated in on-site and off-site arts related activities such as concerts, musical and dance productions and art shows. Our primary goals are improving academics and strengthening community/school relations. Conder Elementary is a whole school magnet with a focus on arts integration.
