Bluffton Elementary School engages students in a STEM-focused learning environment that promotes lifelong learning. Beginning in Pre-Kindergarten, students receive the knowledge and skills needed to build a strong academic foundation.

BLES is the only elementary school in Beaufort County that offers the Accelerated Academy program. This program allows students to learn at a pace that matches their ability, giving them the opportunity to complete three years of instruction in two years. 

In addition to a strong academic program, Bluffton Elementary is dedicated to the individual development of all students. By focusing on the intellectual, emotional, and creative growth of each student, BLES encourages students to become leaders of the next generation.

Recognized as a school that promotes social inclusion. BLES hosts a Young Athletes’ Day for students with special needs.

BLES students complete quarterly community service projects & participate in the annual Rotary Club’s Happy Feet event to support local families.

Each year, hundreds of students are recognized for their Random Acts of Kindness with a certificate and a positive phone call home.

The Webster Trophy is awarded weekly to the class that reads the most lines. BLES also rewards Readers of the Month with a new book.

Recently awarded an all-inclusive garden kit from Clemson Extension School & Community Gardening.
