North Charleston Mayor R. Keith Summey took a tour of the school as construction nears completion. Here are the photos from his tour:

The school has been built to the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) standards, offering energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts.
The library is one of the most charming features of the school. It is arranged in a lounge type setting that is similar to a coffee shop or café. The beautiful woodwork and perched view of the school’s courtyard will provide a comforting setting for the students to study.
Zucker Middle will be home to all students zoned for the school with 100 available seats for students zoned for Morningside Middle and Alice Birney Middle.
Since Zucker Middle is designed, from the curriculum to the classroom, to foster the study of science, Principal Sheryl Biss and her assistant principals are all science educators. This will provide a unique perspective to administering a school of this type.
Jerry Zucker Middle School of Science is located at 6401 Dorchester Road, North Charleston, SC 29418. School will commence at 9:00am and will dismiss at 4:00pm.
