My youngest child attends B-L Elementary and does very well. She is challenged each day in the classroom and the teachers have treated her like one of their own. The school itself is very nice and technological. I've been impressed so far with the students, parents and administration. Everyone in the community cares about the children.

Learning is student centered. Technology is used to enhance learning and labs offer hands on experience.

I have always found the faculty and staff of B-L Elementary to be a caring, dedicated group of professionals. I love the small class sizes and individualized instruction that my children received there.

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.
