If you ask 10 different people you are likely to get 12 different stories of how the Pete’s no restaurants came to be. So in the spirit of tradition this is the version we will go with. The first Pete’s was opened by a Mr. Manos on the West End in the early 1930′s. They sold hot dogs, peanuts, and such. It had various owners before it closed in 1970. Our Great Uncles George and Nick opened Pete’s no 2 in 1941 located on Main Street. Pete’s no 2 occupied two different buildings during its life. That is why some are confused more so because Pete’s no 2 had changed locations and looking back some think they were operating at the same time. Pete’s no 2 is no longer in business and has been closed for many years. Pete’s no 3 opened its doors in 1952 and is located on Pendleton Street. In 1954 Pete’s no 4 (that’s us) was conceived and shortly after opening was sold to their nephews one of which was our father Jimmy Como. Fast forward through the 50′s, 60’s, and in the late 70’s the last remaining partner Rocky sold his share to Jimmy. As you can see on our logos we use 1956 as the year we started. But, our father did not arrive to Greenville SC until 1956. Though he was not a partner at that time that is the year we use. Throughout the last half of the century the old place had been remodeled. In 1985 the new restaurant was built simply because we had outgrown the original one. Just a few feet away the new place was being erected while the old place operated till construction was complete. The local news taped the demolition of the old building. During that interview Jimmy Como told the reporter “My mother had me but that building raised me.” That old building is truly missed and subject to many a story of those that grew up dining there.

The mission of The Chandler School is to empower talented and bright students with dyslexia or other related language-based learning diferences to become effective learners. By addressing both learning needs and intellectual strengths, we promote a love of learning that inspires our students to become strong self-advocates
and confident lifelong learners prepared for the intellectual and social challenges of academics and life.
All students have the capacity to learn. Smart children with language-based learning differences can reach their academic potential through proper instruction within a positive and supportive environment. We guide our bright and capable students to build and master skills by emphasizing their individual strengths while remediating areas of improvement.
The Chandler School curriculum meets all South Carolina Independent School criteria with a course list including literature and language, math, science, social studies, drama, art, keyboarding and physical education.
Our curriculum is based on the principles of the Orton-Gillingham philosophy, a structured, sequential, multi-sensory and phonetic approach to teaching reading and spelling. Daily tutorials are individualized and build on the typically strong cognitive (thinking) skills of the dyslexic student. All Chandler teachers and tutors are Orton-Gillingham trained.
All our classes employ a kinetic/hands-on approach to learning. We offer electives structured around the concept of Multiple Intelligences. This concept asserts that rather than one mode of intelligence, there are nine abilities or intelligences: Linguistic, Mathematical, Musical, Visual-Spatial, Bodily-Kinesthetic, Logical, Naturalist, Interpersonal, and Intrapersonal. Each of our electives emphasizes specific Multiple Intelligences and exposes students to a variety of ways to learn, explore, and develop their unique talents.

Welcome to Hughes Academy of Science and Technology. The mission of the Middle School is to provide a safe and positive learning environment, while striving to address the changes, pressures and uncertainties that middle school age student experience. Our school program is designed to recognize the uniqueness of this growth stage that takes students from childhood to adolescence. Our primary commitment is to promote individual excellence in academics, fine arts, athletics and other areas of student interest.
Hughes Academy is organized into two teams within grade level wings where the intellectual, social and emotional growth needs of students are met in small learning communities. This provides a gradual transition from the self-contained classroom of the elementary school to the departmentalized seven-period day of the typical high school. Active, hands-on learning activities, and the use of technology, increases interest and challenges students to search for answers. Related Arts courses give students opportunities to experience subjects such as foreign language, art, music, band, computer applications, and physical education. We also offer a variety ot technology courses such as Web Publishing, Mobile Applications, Video Game Programming, Electronic Music, Graphic Design, and Gateway-to-Technology.
We strongly encourage parents to be involved in their child’s education. A great deal can be accomplished if we work together to enhance learning. Parents are invited to visit the school, call with concerns, and attend the evening programs presented throughout the school year.
