My daughter is a student at Drayton Hall. Her teacher and the administration at the school truely care about the students and their education.

In unfortunate that drayton Hall is rated the best due to the fact that most schools in the Charleston area are substandard. Drayton Hall elementary is a noth above substandard but still well below the average schools across the U.S.

My child has attended Drayton Hall for the past two and a half years. In that time, it has been readily evident that the principal, assistant principal, staff and teachers all have the best interests of the students at heart. The principal and assistant principal are accessible (not stuck in their offices) and approachable. The teachers are committed to their students and welcome parent involvement. The students seem to enjoy the environment. And the PTA is very active in its efforts to help the school and students succeed.

I went to visit this school during one of my son's many field trips. The teachers were absolutely wonderful. It was the cleanest and most colorful school I have ever seen. I love this school and will do anything to keep my son in it.

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.
