This selection comes after extensive evaluations by a committee of educators and previous Palmetto’s Finest winners. The application process included elements on student achievement, instructional programs, professional learning communities, and school culture.
BJACE is one of the six finalists selected from 19 South Carolina schools after a rigorous evaluation process.
"It is such a great accomplishment for BJACE to be named a finalist for the 2024 Palmetto's Finest Award,” said Jasper County Superintendent, Dr. Rechel Anderson. “Congratulations to all who work tirelessly to ensure that the scholars of Beaufort and Jasper are afforded an opportunity to embrace the many academic career pathways that lead to endless career opportunities. I look forward to watching BJACE continue to soar!"
