From Our Principal
Founded in the fall of 2005, Langston Charter Middle School has continued to provide a high-quality education to students in grades 6, 7 and 8 through single gender education with an emphasis on developing the next generation of leaders in the classroom and in the community. Faculty and staff partner with parents and students to create an environment focused on strong
academics enriched by personal responsibility through a steadfast commitment from all stakeholders. Students at Langston are provided with an opportunity to earn up to 4 high school credits by the end of 8th grade. Teachers continually hone skills through professional development and advanced degrees. The combination of experienced teachers, dedicated parents, and motivated students has been and continues to be the key to Langston’s success as evidenced by student performance year after year on the state report card.
I am excited to take the lead as Langston continues to build upon the solid foundation established by visionary parents that desired a superior education for their middle school students.

Having been told that the middle school years were a time to “just get through,” Lisa Stevens, our founding board chair, gathered a group of dedicated parents and professionals to create a better option for students in Greenville County. After almost 2 years of hard work, Langston Charter Middle School opened in August 2005 with 6 teachers and 111 students in grades 6, 7, and 8. From our first building (a six room former daycare facility) we began to build a legacy of student leadership and success. Between 2007 and 2010, we occupied a larger facility and grew to 300 students. In 2010, we moved to our current campus – our permanent home! With 26 teachers and 450 students, we continue to provide an excellent educational option for Upstate families.
The mission of Langston Charter Middle School is to enrich and empower sixth, seventh, and eighth graders with personal responsibility and a compassion for their community through single gender classes and innovative teacher, parent, and community collaborative learning. Langston Charter Middle School expects parents to be involved in their child's academic, emotional, and social development.
