The Governor's School High School

The GSSM Eagles’ nest in Hartsville SC, at 401 Railroad Avenue sits the South Carolina Governors School for Science and Math (GSSM). It is a public residential STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) centric school. Students from across the state compete and apply to attend GSSM. Acceptance is based on numerous factors but the common denominator for all accepted students is a very strong academic background and high grade point average. GSSM is a two year program, Juniors and Seniors only at this time. While here, the students pursue a rigorous academic schedule with numerous college level courses being offered and exciting STEM focused electives.

Besides handling the academic load, students at GSSM compete on 16 different South Carolina High School League (SCHSL) sanctioned teams. Men’s and Women’s Cross Country, Women’s Volleyball, Men’s and Women’s Swimming, Men’s and Women’s Track, Men’s and Women’s Soccer, Men’s and Women’s Golf, Men’s and Woman’s Tennis, Women’s and Men’s Basketball, and Cheer.

The GSSM athletics program is unique in many ways. Being a two year program causes 50% of all teams to be new every year. Our program is run on a no-cut policy. The coaching staff will coach every player without regard to their skill level. Every player gets the chance for game time at least every other game, match, or meet. GSSM offers dance and fitness programs for all students. The Eagles have 20 coaches on their staff, a full time athletic trainer and state of the art athletic training facility. GSSM also offers a sports medicine interim course that students may sign up for.
