Public Elementary & Middle School Coming To Carnes Crossroads
January 22, 2020 | Around Town
Exciting news!! Carnes Crossroads is getting a brand new public elementary and middle school. It’s a recent development, and site selection has not yet been finalized. But to help address the problem of overburdened schools in our growing region, the Berkeley County Board of Education has announced plans to build a new school here at Carnes, and is working with the development team and builders here to make it happen sooner rather than later.
The new school will be funded in part by a first of its kind “memorandum of understanding” between our development team and the school district to implement voluntary impact fees that will be paid by builders constructing new homes in the community.
Over the past two decades, our development and management team has collaborated with the Berkeley County School district to help develop three public schools in two planned communities in Charleston. Schools are among the foundational building blocks of a strong community, and we could not be more excited to have the opportunity to work with district leaders again to bring quality public education to Carnes Crossroads.
