What's Happening                               View All


Each spring since 1978, SCASA (South Carolina Association of School Administrators) has recognized a few schools which offer excellent instruction and outstanding leaders, augmented by strong family and community involvement and a supportive business community.

Initially presented only to two elementary schools and one middle school, the award was expanded in 1996-97, with the support of Carolina First Bank, to include a high school.
The selection process includes a comprehensive review of a school's program, focusing on the key question: "What impact is this school making on the lives of students and the community, and is it deserving of the Palmetto's Finest Award?"

Principal's Message

Dear Parents and Friends,

Welcome to the wonderful world of Waccamaw Intermediate School. We are located just west of the beautiful white sandy beaches of Litchfield, South Carolina. We are rated an "Excellent School" and have been named a "Palmetto Gold School" by the South Carolina State Department of Education for Overall Achievement and Closing the Achievement Gap. In addition we received a grade of "A" on our federal report card.

As we celebrate our ninth year as a school community, we continue as an intermediate school specializing in the education of nine, ten, and eleven year olds. Academic achievement is our primary purpose. Our staff is dedicated to providing a quality education for our students. Teachers are all highly qualified in their subject areas. Our teachers, the majority with Master's degrees, work together on various teams that support the sharing of ideas and resources. We provide quality instruction focused on state curriculum standards and high academic goals.

We never lose sight that we are here for our children. They are the heart of our school and are what makes Waccamaw Intermediate the best place to learn. How proud I am of our students and staff and it is a privilege to be their principal.

Educationally Yours,
Dr. Tim Carnahan
