Clover High School is one of nine South Carolina schools in the running to receive a “Palmetto’s Finest Award.”

The finalists were announced on Wednesday by the South Carolina Association of School Administrators.

They were named “after extensive evaluations by fellow educators and previous Palmetto’s Finest winners.”

In the fall, 17 schools applied for the award. The application included elements on student achievement, instructional programs, professional learning communities and school culture, according to the press release.

Each finalist will have a second on-site evaluation.

In addition to Clover High School, the list of finalists include:

Midland Elementary School, Horry County

Okatie Elementary School, Beaufort County

Boiling Springs Middle School, Spartanburg District 2

Forestbrook Middle School, Horry County

Landrum Middle School, Spartanburg District 1

Camden High School, Kershaw County

Fairfield Magnet School for Math and Science, Fairfield County

Howe Hall Arts Infused Magnet School, Berkeley County

Either four or five winners will be named on March 26. The last time a York County school won the award was 2005.

Clover High School, the only high school in the Clover school district, has around 2,000 students and was given a rating of “Excellent” on its last state report card.
