Bradley Elementary was a blessing for my 3 year-old needing Speech Therapy. We loved all his teachers. We knew they worked hard and loved every minute of it. They love their students and take educating them seriously.

My child is in the Advanced Placement Program at Bradley. She is working two grade levels above and there are students in her math class that are already working on college level math. I'm very impressed with the academic rigors at this school. I highly recommend it.

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.
