I would rate this school a 4 1/2 star. I know there is always room for improvement but Conway Middle is on the right track. The staff at Conway Middle are dedicated to the health, safety, and educational needs of all students. Students are dedicated to making sure that their school is a safe and fun environment so that they can learn all the necessary skills to move on to high school and beyond. I love the fact that everyone at this school work together to make sure it is successful.

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.
