224 Powell Drive is located in Lexington School District One where students attend Meadow Glen Elementary, Middle and River Bluff High Schools. Lexington One schools continue to rank in the top percentile among SC schools. Meadow Glen Elementary School teaches Mandarin Chinese through partial immersion.
According to Lexington One, “partial immersion is a means of acquiring a world language through content matter instruction. In this program, students develop communicative and academic proficiency in Mandarin Chinese while succeeding academically in all subject areas at levels comparable to those they would have reached if they had been schooled only in English.
Beginning in 5 year-old Kindergarten, students at Meadow Glen Elementary School spend half the day studying the regular grade level curriculum and standards in classes conducted in Mandarin Chinese. The other half of the day is conducted in English. Mathematics and science are taught in Mandarin Chinese. English language arts, social studies and related arts are taught in English.”
