Great faculty and staff! Caring individuals who really take an interest in the students! It truly is 'One of the Best'.

My son has attended Oakwood since 2006 and I would rate this school with five stars. His 1st grade teacher Mrs. Thompson is great, she really goes out of her way to help. The entire staff at Oakwood has been great.

Posted May 30, 2007

My grand-son attended Oakwood-Windsor for the first time in 2006-2007 school year. From experience between the school he attended last year to this school is very different. His teacher talked about what was best for my grand-son because he is boarder line on understanding the school work and his grades were not low enough to get him the special help that he would have needed. She made him feel comfortable with the fact that he may stay back and he is and is happy that he is. I think this school also goes above and beyond for P.E. program and that's great. I like that they give the children free time because I believe they do better with having some free time. We are very pleased with Oakwood-Windsor and I would rate them a five star. There isn't enough room to write how pleased I am with this school.

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.
