Fort Dorchester Elementary School

Welcome to FDES

We are excited to begin another school year at Fort Dorchester Elementary School!

This year we are continuing to implement Growth Mindset while also becoming a Capturing Kids’ Hearts school. The mission of Capturing Kids’ Hearts with kids is “to win their hearts and to lead them to their personal best”. We pride ourselves on leading the way in DD2, South Carolina, and in public education. My top priorities will always be keeping your children safe and helping them develop a love of learning, which will carry them through their entire lives with TAILS to tell.
