Gators of the Week: River Bluff High School is a Finalist!!
The competition for these awards is very tough.
The application process includes elements on student achievement, instructional programs, professional learning communities and school culture as well as extensive evaluations by fellow educators and previous Palmetto’s Finest winners.
Last fall, RBHS submitted a 20-page application and received an onsite examination visit by a review committee. RBHS will now receive a second onsite evaluation.
The final announcement happens on Tuesday, March 20, 2018 at 1:45 p.m. and will be streamed live to each of the finalist schools.

Great job vs. Irmo High Friday with school spirit and themed attire. The crowd made the difference.

Signing Out Procedures
A reminder to parents regarding signing students out during the school day. Someone from the student's sign out sheet must come in and show ID to dismiss a child. We do not accept phone calls or emails for dismissal. You can come in on Monday to sign your child out during the week but only up until Friday of the same week. Also, if you are dismissing your child during ILT, then it is helpful to have made arrangements with the student ahead of time. We appreciate your help to assist in making this process efficient.
Counseling and Advisement Assignments for Students
Counseling and Advisement Team
The Counseling & Advisement team is working towards a more intentionally focused program to provide students with the best support. Rather than counselors having students in all grade levels (9-12), we are realigning to be able to more appropriately serve students’ transitional needs at the different levels. This realignment will also more closely mirror our CREW design allowing students to stay with their school counselor their 9th and 10th grade years and then have another counselor their 11th and 12th grade years.
