The Fort Mill School District is rated 9 out of a high score of 10 by greatschools.net. See the ranking of each school on my Fort Mill Info page . One of the reasons those of us who have school age kids picked the Fort Mill or Tega Cay area to live is because of the great public school system.
Rumor has hit with a handful of neighboring Realtors® all Fort Mill Schools are now on a new enrollment freeze. This is absolutely not true!
Yes two elementary schools which are Gold Hill and Orchard Park are currently in a new enrollment freeze. New students will be enrolled in Riverview Elementary. The distirct will fill any available seats that may open over the summer.
New to the freeze list is Springfield Elementary. Any new students after June 2008 will be enrolled to Fort Mill Elemenrary.
I count only 3 schools in a freeze out of 10. That is hardly an all school district freeze. Two new elementary schools will open in the fall of 2009. In addition Nations Ford High School opened this last fall to relive the bulging enrollment at Fort Mill High School.
So those of you considering relocating to Fort Mill or Tega Cay rest assured your son or daughter will attend one of the highly rated schools in the Fort Mill District.
