Who We Are
Meeting Street Schools (MSS), a unique network of five schools across South Carolina, was founded in 2008 on the belief that all students can achieve at high levels and deserve the opportunity to receive a high-quality education, regardless of their socio-economic background. It is our belief that a student’s zip code should not determine a student’s access to quality educational opportunities. At Meeting Street Streets, we believe in a holistic approach to student development and work to provide the experience and resources that facilitate student success in the classroom and beyond.  To provide this, we make a twenty-year commitment to students and families, from early childhood education to college access support and scholarships.


Who We're Looking For
We are searching for people who strongly align with our mission and believe all students — regardless of life circumstances– can and will succeed. We seek people who have the motivation, drive, compassion, and commitment to ensure that all students reach their full potential. We hold ourselves to high standards and embrace accountability in our pursuit of outcomes that change the lives of students. High-performing people who desire to join us in our mission to change the status quo of education in South Carolina and prove that higher learning is not only possible but expected are encouraged to apply.
