Lady's Island schools should not be the first choice for anyone moving to the Beaufort area. Beaufort is for rich and retired persons who do not have children in the school system. Lady's Island schools pretend to be schools. They are filled with transient teachers who do not care about SC state schools because they are not native to the state. I am from the midlands and it was a shock to us all how backward the schools down here are and they don't care that they are so far behind most US districts. Teachers lay out of work, bully the children, do not care about parent involvement, and they change administration faster that the tides. Our superintendents come from out of state, then they leave to take another job out of the state. The low country is a dumping ground for teachers not wanted in their own states, then a stepping stone for those wanting to get experience without ties so they can leave as soon as they get their year in. Our kids are the ones who actually get left behind. This system is the reason SC is 49th in the country. The midlands and upstate schools are great. Here they are lacking a great deal and they know it, but they are not from SC so they don't care.

My child loves Ladys Island Middle School. The teachers and all of the staff are courteous and most helpful. The teachers and aides present the learning experience in a way that my son seeks to learn every day. He is looking forward to returning from summer break

Very unprofessional and unfriendly faculty members. I dread walking into this school.

My 4 children went here. They all received great attention. Teachers loved, taught them as they'd want their own taught. Special needs adhd& others are in regular classes with considerations given & not 'teachers pet' exceptions that get them outcast. No bully-policy. School of the arts> music, drama and dance. Great outlets for busy and blooming minds. I miss those wonderful people. Lunchroom staff knew kids by first name! even memorized their allergies_c'mon where else would they do that but the low country? Gotta love that kind of lovin' educational environment!

Wonderful school!! Year round really helps my Son. He doesn't get burned out. Academic programs are very well thought out and challenge our childern. Drama is the best extracurricular program for children. Teachers are great and always willing to extend be on their hand, to help a child. Can't say enough about 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.
