Inman Downtown Master Plan

Over the course of three days the City of Inman asked the residents, local business owners, and those concerned about the future of the city for their thoughts and ideas about our downtown. The Bordeaux Group and Toole Design have been hired to help guide the process of developing a downtown master plan. The videos below are the presentation that was developed as a draft for this master plan. We welcome you to watch and learn about possible ideas for our downtown. If you have thoughts and/or suggestions we would love to hear from you.

Chapman High School Named a National Blue Ribbon School

Chapman High School in Inman was one of six schools in South Carolina to be named a National Blue Ribbon School, the state Department of Education announced Thursday.

The high school in Spartanburg School District One is one of several schools in the Upstate receiving the honor.

Two schools in Greenville County also received the recognition. They are A.J. Whittenberg Elementary School and Saint Mary's Catholic School.

The nation's highest performing schools are honored with the award each year based on "overall academic excellence or their progress in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups" on state and national assessments, according to the U.S. Department of Education.

"We are extremely proud of these six South Carolina schools that have been honored nationally for their academic excellence," State Superintendent of Education Molly Spearman said in a written statement. "This award is testament to the hard work of students, teachers, staff, and families in these communities. These six schools are models of excellence for our entire state and nation."

Across the country, 317 public and 50 private schools were given the award this year. A virtual awards ceremony will be Nov. 12-13, 2020.
