Profile Completeness


Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

I have a 6 yr old that attends Waccamaw as well as several nieces and I really have nothing bad to say about the school other than its age is starting to show. Other than that the staff is excellent and my child is growing rapidly in a positive manner.

Like the school, not a fan of the fundraising. As a parent, I dont feel welcomed in becoming a member of the pto. The forms I filled out in the beginging of the year, I never received a response nor an invite to join the pto. I feel that the school could be more organized and informative on certain situations... ie. dropping off and picking up.

I am a mother of 3. All 3 go to Waccamaw. This school has along history with my family. I was the only generation not to go to school here. It is the best school for children to learn and grow at. They have understanding and hard working teacher. And, for that they should be noticed.

A great place! Students and staff are proud to say they are from Waccamaw. I am a former student, parent of students, and now employee of Waccamaw School. We are not just an 'elementary school' It is the only K-8 school in Brunswick County. Most recently rated as one of 28 top schools in the state as the best place to work.
