This is a community school! The staff and students work together to ensure learning. Teachers use Howard Gardner's multiple intelligences to teach all of the learning styles. Test scores are rising but it is a slow process due to the world around us. Enrollment is also on the rise! The students are respectful and have strong personalities! I love working at this school and I would recommend it to anyone.

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.
