Burns Elementary is in my blood. I have been thete 23 yesrs. Watching families and children grow and now seeing it come full circle teaching children of the students I taught years a go. Our staff go ab I ve and beyond to support, educate, and love our students simply necause we love them like they are our own!.I can't imagine being anywhere else. Our students are engaged with interactive learning, personalized learning and positive behavior incentives. Our students have many resources available to ensure that they are successful. We have a phenomenal staff st Burns. I vount myself as blessed to get to work with such a caring and living staff.

The teachers and staff of Burns Elementary are continually going above and beyond to support their students in any way possible- buying clothing and food, assisting families with emergency situations, providing additional assistance to students before and after school. All of this is done without any incentive provided to teachers. They truly care about their students in a way that can't be described or matched. The students are extremely lucky to have such caring adults in their corner.

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.
