Posted July 2, 2007

I have been pleased with the leadership and the quality of the teachers at North Aiken Elem. School. I have had a student there for 2 years now and he has received a challenging education. The Principal has gone above and beyond his duty to ensure that I have understood what was happening with my child's education and why. Both of the teachers that my child has had the pleasure of being taught by have genuinely cared about my child and the other children in their care. I would highly recommend this school.

North Aiken Elementary serves its population extremely well. The lack of parent involvement in education really hurts the students that attend this school. The district and school have provided many resources to help these children get an education. Unfortuneately, you can't control the home environment.

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.
