Posted April 4, 2006

I myself was a student at Brunson Elementary, and now that I have children of my own I know where I would want them to go. Yes, this is a small town, but the school has its advantages. The small atmoshpere where everbody know everybody is good in situation such as this. The teachers know all of the children by name and maybe even went to school with their parents. It's easy to run into each other in the supermarkets. I would recommend this school to any parent. The test scores show how hard the stundents work at 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.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 South Carolina used the End-of-Course Examination Program (EOCEP) to test middle and high school students in Algebra I, Mathematics for the Technologies II, Biology I, English I, US History, and US History and Government. The EOCEP provides tests in high school core courses and for courses taken in middle school for high school credit. The EOCEP is a standards-based test program, 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 a C or above.
