I have a 3rd grader who previously attended a small private school. It has been an adjustment both academically and structure wise. I could not have made a better choice. The school teacher, guidance counselor, nurse, and principal have all shown a great deal of support and together, my son has already come a long way. My only regret is that I wish I would have started him there sooner. I am very grateful to have him at Harbor View Elementary!

A wonderful school! The teachers that my son had were the best. Sadly, we moved from the state and had to leave HVE. It is hard to settle for any other school, now that our expectations are so high.

My child is in fourth grade and has been at HVE since Kindergarten. Through the years we have had our ups and downs with various teachers, yet we have found HVE to be nurturing as well as academically strong. The principal, Mr. Keith Mason, has proven year after year to have the best interest of his students and school at the top of his agenda. The school is clean and the students are very happy and proud of their academic accomplishments. There really is not another elementary school in Charleston County that I think could do better. If we had other children I would be happy to have them attend HVE.

We love this school. Our son learned to read in kindergarten. The teachers are excellent and involved with the kids, there is a great system of community and parental support, and there's a great atmosphere at the school. The kids have a different special area every day(music, art, p.e., computers, library). They have interesting field trips. We are moving and are very sad we can't take our favorite elementary school with us!
