GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -
Parents camped out at an Upstate elementary school to wait for registration to open up.
On Sunday, parents were lined up with tents and chairs at A.J. Whittenburg Elementary School in Greenville to register their students on Thursday.
Whittenburg is an engineering magnet school with a curriculum focused on math, science and technology and will have a limited number of openings for new students and the parents want to be first in line to register.
"South Carolina we always complain about we're last in everything and now we finally got a school that'll catapult our kids in education especially engineering," said Jerry Blassingame, a parent waiting in line on Sunday.
"Talk about science and math technology our children need that," said Blassingame. "With our world going high tech and engineering, this will be a great start for our children starting K4 all the way to fifth grade. So we're all out here trying to make sure our children get a head start in education."
The parents said on Sunday they would wait until Thursday no matter what the weather is like.
