Dr. Scott Sutherland


My name is Dr. Scott Sutherland and I teach sixth and seventh grade science at NEMS. I am also a lead teacher for the Aiken County Public School District and the school's sponsor for both future city and student council. This will be my eleventh year of teaching at New Ellenton Middle STEAM Magnet School and I am excited about bringing my love of learning into the classroom! One of my goals as a teacher is to ensure that students are equipped with both the knowledge and skills in order to be well prepared for high-demand jobs and careers that will be available to them when they graduate.

Want to support your child's science classroom?

*All donations go to new programs so that your child can get experience and skills to prepare for their future!

*I appreciate any support and hope that your child benefits greatly from these programs!

Want to help your child at home?

The following resources may be used at home to assist your child with their learning. New students will be provided their account information in the first week of School. Current students may still use their accounts set up last year to access the materials.

   - USATestPrep

   - Schoology

   - Clever

These web resources have class powerpoints, notes, vocabulary practice, sample assessment questions, and interactive games which students can use in order to study the content.
