    They have a fine reputation in this community. They are proactive - the children are learning in a productive and supportive environment. They have recently been working on saving on energy usage and have earned State attention for these efforts.

    I am not a parent but an education student assigned to Sumter Primary. I have found it to be a very warm inviting and caring environment for students. The faculty and staff are wonderful and are truly there for the students not just the paycheck. If our family lived in Sumter County I would enroll my daughter in this school before any of the others.
