I went to JD Lever at the end of my 5th grade year and I wish I would have gone thew all my elemetery years there it is a great school.


Posted August 5, 2011

JD Lever is a great school. The teachers communicate with the parents everyday about your child's conduct in class. The teachers also communicates every week about your child's progress in each subject. You don't get any surprises when report card day comes around. My children loves JD Lever, and we have not had a problem with bullying. That's a huge plus for us! Thank you JD Lever for treating my children like your own.

The teachers and staff work so hard to help our students. I just moved my child 07'/08' (3rd grade) and we are very impressed. I wished I would have had my child in this school from the start of her education. My daughters teacher kept great communication with us. He has been her favorite teacher.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 South Carolina used the Palmetto Assessment of State Standards (PASS) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in Writing, English/Language Arts, Math, Social Studies and Science. The PASS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of South Carolina. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
