Principal's Message

July 12, 2017                

 Welcome to Inman Elementary School, where our mission is to provide every child with a quality student-centered education. IES has a rich history of academic success. We have received the South Carolina Literacy Spot Award, the South Carolina Exemplary Reading Award, and were named a South Carolina Palmetto Finest Finalist in 2014. Inman Elementary has a unique grade structure of K4 - 3rd grade, allowing the faculty and staff to focus on needs specific to early childhood students.   All teachers are highly qualified and have been trained to meet the needs of the early learner.  IES has approximately 530 students and a teacher/student ratio of 17:1. The vast majority of  teachers have been trained in Reading Recovery and practice balanced literacy on a daily basis. Our goal is to ensure that every student is reading on or above grade level before they leave our campus. As I enter my first year as principal at Inman Elementary, I am excited to see the love, passion, and expectations for academic excellence from every faculty and staff member.  The future of Inman Elementary couldn’t be brighter. It is a fabulous school with a wonderful, caring staff.

 I am entering my twenty-third year in education and for seventeen of those years I have served the students of Spartanburg School District One. I was previously the principal of Landrum Middle School from 2000-2006 and of Campobello Gramling School from 2006 to 2017. I look forward to continuing to serve the District One community as your principal. 

 The faculty and staff hope you enjoy our website and that you are able to find the answers to any questions you may have. Currently we are observing summer hours and if for some reason we are unable to answer the phone, please leave a message with your name and number so we can return your call.  

 Enjoy the rest of the summer and I look forward to seeing everyone on August 8th for registration.

 Thank you

 John Hodge
