My school is still engrossed in whole school transformation,but it is well on its way!
—Submitted by a parent


Posted July 6, 2009

When my child started this school I was worried because the administration was changing hands. I joind the PTO to make sure I knew what was going on. Doing this led me to meet the nicest principal and assiatant principle I have seen in schools ion a long time. They work so well together and the kids are so responsive to them. They show respect to the parents and childrena dn the children respond to them like a friend and mentor. I am very pleesed with the new administration. Their report card for this scholl was not as good but none of them are in South Carolina so I choose the school that my child WANTS to go to every day. I hope this helps others in their decision.

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.
