Four new healthcare-themed magnet programs are coming to Richland Two. Bridge Creek Elementary, Rice Creek Elementary, Kelly Mill Middle and Ridge View High schools will receive over $11.2 million in federal grant money to implement the MedPro 21: Healthcare for a Caring Community project which focuses on medical careers and reducing obesity in South Carolina. Each school will incorporate a STEAMM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math, Medical) theme into their curriculum and offer it to all students.
The magnets will help bring diverse groups of students together through the use of innovative educational programs and will create more school choices for parents. This five-year grant is offered through the U.S. Department of Education's Magnet Schools Assistance Program. By implementing a STEAMM focus, these schools will be able to increase academic achievement and provide all students the opportunity to meet challenging state content and achievement standards.
The lead teacher for the Kelly Mill Middle Med Pro Middle is Dr. Ezetta Myers. She can be reached at email@example.com. In addition, tours are available and more detailed information can be found in the STEAMM Information Portfolio online and in the STEAMM Med Pro 21 video.
