Posted October 12, 2012

This school only received a 2 out of 10 rating. The population is inner city children who are street wise. Burnside is not a good fit for any child that is not from the inner city . There is a tremendous amount of disciple problems at this school. The tough inner city environment fosters and encounters disciple problems. The office staff is rude and even some of the teachers are not on board. Some teachers do indeed care, especially the lower grades but as the grades progress there is a great deal of apathy among the teachers. It would be very beneficial and to the best interest of the parent and child to explore other schools in the area, charter schools and private schools in the area, rather than to send your child to Burnside Elementary 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.
