My grandson attends Rosewood elementary school. During the month of March they did the "Pennies for Peace". Anyway my co-workers help him out. I' curious how many pennies did they raise?

My son has attended Rosewood for two years and the experience has been great. He is continually challenged to improve and is reading well above his grade level.

My children have been at Rosewwod for 2 years now. We are very pleased with the entire school and staff. My children just adore their teachers and of course, Dr. Wachter. They truly love going to school everyday. It has been one of our best decisions moving them to Rosewood. I am rating it #1 Thanks, A pleased parent!

I attended Rosewood Elementary School through the 5th grade. It was a wonderful school then, and it still is. As a matter of fact, I have three of my own children there now. I have been very impressed with the education that my children have received thus far. I am especially excited about the motivational challenges that are set before my children. When their teachers see that they are prepared to advance to another level, they do not restrict them. They always encourage advancement. They allow each child to excel based on their ability. At the same token, when a student is in need of extra assistance, they have never hesitated to give them the attention and nurturing they deserve. Hats off to Rosewood for a job well done! Keep up the good work!

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.
