I have a son at clover middle I have had nothing but great things to say about there teachers. Its been hard to let my son start learning and striving on his own,but the way clover continues to keep parents informed is great! I can see his good and bad without having to stress my son on his schoolwork

We have a terrible principal who is not interested in the preforming arts but however is interested in the sporting events. We (as students) no longer have a way to express ourselves inside the school and no teacher or other staff member seems to care. The academics are great, maybe that's just because we have principal who wont let us perform more than two performances a year inside the 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.
