Sugar Mill Elementary, home of the Panthers, is located in Port Orange on 20 acres at the corner of McDonald and Charles Streets.The school came into existence in 1982, while the physical plant was under construction, the faculty and staff were housed at both North and South Ridgewood Elementary Schools. Problems at the new facility included pigs in the open hallways, bats in the ceiling and snakes everywhere, but Sugar Mill's administration, faculty and students persevered. The student population of Sugar Mill Elementary quickly grew to 1400. There were four classes to each grade level and portables as far as the eye could see. Construction of Horizon Elementary and, later, Sweetwater Elementary eased this overcrowding considerably.
