We have been very happy with FOJO. My daughter recently completed 6th grade. Although the school does not have separate gifted programming, students are able to take honors or GT honors math and English. These classes are challenging. The 6th grade teaching team was excellent. There are also many athletic and arts-related opportunities. Students are afforded the opportunity to be well-rounded. I highly recommend this school.

FOJO has a great staff! The teachers are very involved with each and every student as well as the principal and vice principal. They are up on the latest and greatest as far as education is concerned. The parents and the PTA is awesome! There are many volunteers making it a great school and 100% participation in the PTA. I feel very fortunate that my son attends this school.

This school is a great school and my child enjoys it so much. I am very glad I sent him here instead of to James Island Middle School.

This is a wonderful school! My children are learning so much, and the band program is outstanding! The principal really cares about the students, and the teachers are wonderful! A+

Fort Johnson Middle School's success is owed to the Principal and Asst. Principal. Because they have firm disciplinary proceedures and hire wonderful teachers, the school runs smoothly and is a place where children can really learn. Hats off to Mr. Parler and his staff!

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.
