I have had nothing but issues with this school from day one. My child has a learning issue and disability and I don't think this school wants to take time with children who have issues they just want them to take medicine.

I am very impressed with the way the children are looked after. I am a grandparent who lives outside of South Carolina. I have had the wonderful opportunity to visit on several occasions. My granddaughter seems quite happy with her daily routine & is very interested in reading & participating in activities. All of my questions have been answered in a very matter of fact & caring manner. Thanks!

This school was once the best in area 3. Things have changed. The concern for children has vanished. Wish I had moved my children sooner, but I'm not a quitter and tried to believe things would brighten up. I hope I have not waited too long to move my youngest child. I don't want him to hate school.

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.
