Welcome to the Lyman Elementary School Website!
Our school is located in one of Spartanburg County’s fastest growing areas. Lyman Elementary houses 670 students in pre-kindergarten through 4th grade. The faculty and staff of 75 serve our students in a state of the art facility. It is our belief that we are all stakeholders in the educational lives of every student. Through innovative and challenging educational experiences, we strive to meet the individual needs of all students at Lyman.
Students learn reading through a balanced literacy approach which includes the use of the Journeys Literacy Program. This year we are implementing enVisions Math for our math instruction. Science standards are addressed through exciting hands-on activities in our classrooms and through instruction involving the use of grade-level science kits. Our school joins the other schools in District Five in the continued implementation of the Learning-Focused School initiative and the standards-based units that have been developed for each content area. This exciting school reform model provides greater focus on standards and curriculum for both teachers and students. Common Core Standards are being implemented in each grade level this school year.
Opportunities for students are abundant at Lyman Elementary School. Students have access to computers in labs and in classrooms, as well as the use of digital cameras, video cameras, Interwrite boards and various tablet devices. Student leadership is encouraged through participation in Student Council, Pride Patrol, and Captains of the Flag.
