Message from our Founding Principal, Tamil

Hi, my name is Tamil Goodson, and I’m thrilled to be the founding principal of Meeting Street’s first campus in the Low Country.

As a mother of my own six-year-old, I know what’s at stake here, and I promise Meeting Street Jasper & Beaufort will always value your voice and look out for your child.

I have personally seen the positive impact that Meeting Street Schools has on children’s lives, and I’m proud to be a part of this very important mission.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me. I’d love to talk to you about Meeting Street and your child’s bright future here.

What We Believe and How We Achieve It

All Children Deserve Access to an Excellent Education

We are free, open to all families of Kindergarten and 1st grade students in South Carolina. We will add a new grade every year so your kids can grow up at our school.

Young Children Learn Best in Small Groups

We have two certified teachers in our lower grade classrooms to ensure your child receives the individual attention needed to succeed. (This two-teacher model will be for grades K-2.)

Diversity is an asset

We believe that interactions with people from different backgrounds help students cultivate empathy and increase problem-solving abilities. We take pride in our diverse staff and student body, and we warmly welcome all bilingual students and families.

Students Should Feel Safe at School

We don’t just teach children how to be booksmart, we teach them how to be good humans. Our emphasis on social and emotional growth creates a safe, supportive environment that discourages bullying while celebrating kindness, empathy, and self-control.

It Takes a Village to Raise Great Kids!

We value strong partnerships with our families and know that the best relationships are the ones in which everyone feels seen and heard. We will always listen to you, and clearly communicate (in English or Spanish) the information you need to be engaged in your child’s education.

Our Curriculum

We take pride in providing all students with an excellent education. Our academic program teaches children what they need to know now and prepares them for the next grade – and beyond!

In addition to excellent academics, our “Path to Success” program focuses on your child’s social and emotional growth. We will help your child develop grit, gratitude, optimism, empathy, citizenship, integrity, self-control, and curiosity. Each of these values empower children with the tools they need to succeed in school, work, and life.

School Uniforms

We've found that school uniforms create an environment in which all kids feel like part of the community — allowing them to thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.

Free shirts are provided to your child at the beginning of each school year.

We ask that they wear this with khaki or navy bottoms.
