AAG Architects is extremely proud to serve Dorchester School District Two’s Sand Hill Elementary School project at Summers Corner. The district is the only local district that received an “A” in federal ratings in 2015, and is considered one of the best educational programs in the State of SC. This brand-new, state-of-the-art facility reflects that excellence in education.

“Learn, Grow, and Serve” defines Sand Hill Elementary School’s instructional focus. To achieve their goals, the school utilizes state of the art technology and equipment, as well as the beautiful nature of the surrounding Lowcountry. The natural landscape was strongly considered while designing SHES. The faculty and students have access to nature trails, community parks, and multiple recreational areas. A respect for nature is an important part of the SHES curriculum.

The building was conceived to encourage student interaction and collaboration while providing a hub for the surrounding (and growing) walkable community. At Sand Hill Elementary School, technology is infused in the educational process. The school also has an engineering lab and a robotics team, allowing students to learn valuable STEM concepts that they can apply through all aspects of life. And soon to come is a Tinker Lab, a resource that will allow elementary students to deeply engage in science and engineering.


AAG Architects is very excited to follow Sand Hill Elementary School’s journey. We are proud to help contribute to this excellent educational program and be a part of the Sand Hill Elementary School family. To learn more about this project, visit the local Summer’s Corner blog.
