Center for Achievement

Richland School District 2
Columbia, SC

The Center for Achievement is a community-based magnet school built to further the District’s commitment to providing world-class instructional programs that provide optimum learning settings for all students. This 20,000 sq. ft. 2nd-5th grade elementary program provides students with individual attention and challenging coursework geared to nurture their unique interests. The site development includes a dedicated drop-off lane, play-area, and integrated outdoor amphitheater that features an existing pine-grove buffer as a natural backdrop. Seeking to nurture communal learning and a strong sense of identity, the Center’s main corridor has been developed as an internal day-lit plaza featuring a reading/seating structure as its focal-point. Flanked by grouped classrooms and a multi-purpose room, this area serves to greatly enhance flexible teaching opportunities through small group and combined class activities.
