Posted February 14, 2006

I love the first grade program. My daughter is learning alot and she is also a straight A student. The entire first grade has a weekly homework sheet that is given out on Monday. They do not have homework on Friday and on their breaks, even though I think they should. My son is in the fourth grade and he rarely has any homework. Even though he is a straight A student, he would still benefit from homework. They also need to have more advanced programs for those children who excel.

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.
