Posted December 22, 2004

My husband and I are very unhappy with this school. The teaching staff seems a bit preoccupied with other issues than the ones concerning our children. I strongly belive from my experience with this school, that they are not an institution of learning but a glorified daycare center. Communication between the parent and teacher needs much improvement. I would suggest to anyone who has their child in this school to take them out immediately.

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.
