Over all the teachers are good with the exception of 1 or 2 ,but my biggest concern is the bullying get that my son receives .We spoke with the assistant principal and the teachers at different occasions and was assured that this would be handled. The day after this was handled supposedly the bully gold my son nothing going happened to him other than the guidance councilors telling him sweety you need to get along with him.Wow really? So of course the problem happened again, but my son is scared to say anything cause he said he knows the staff won't hold him responsible and put is him! This is rediculous! Some school .

Redcliffe Elementary has been one of the best schools my children have attended, and we move a lot. The faculty and staff are super friendly, kind, warm, and inviting. They are in constant communication with parents. Their classrooms are well organized, and the teachers enjoy teaching, which allows students the opportunity to enjoy learning. Any issues with bullying have been immediately dealt with. They take their students' well-being very seriously. Thank you, Redcliffe, for providing my family with a great educational experience!

I have been very pleased with redcliffe from 4k-4th so far. We will be in the 5th this year and i have one in the second. I have been extremely pleased with the warm welcome feeling from the principal down to the maintenance staff. I know that i am welcome at any time in my children's school. I have been very pleased with the academics and test scores as compared with other schools in our area. Way to go redcliffe!

Redcliffe is an awesome school with great teachers and a very friendly staff! Being an arts infused school, intergrating the arts into the curriculum is done on a daily basis. This allows the students to have repeated access to the core curriculum in every class. They have music, art, dance, drama, PE, and science lab. The students learn so much and retain alot more because of the added exposure.

Excellent School and Staff structure... Our daughter is in her 3rd year at Redcliffe and has NEVER had the structure or the curriculum dissapoint her or us. Redcliffe is the standard for elementary schools in SC.

I have a 5 year old who attends Redcliffe and I am pleased with the quality of education he is receiving. His teachers are friendly, well trained, and communicate often with parents. In my opinion, Redcliffe earns an A+!

my daughter attended this school for her 1st grade year and I can say that the teachers and staff there were absoulutely wonderful! We now live on the west coast and am disappointed that the school districts standards here for learning are not as high as at Redcliffe.
