It's fun sometimes, but it's still boring. I think it would be a good school for some kids. The work is easy, the teachers can sort of be fun. It's not that bad.


Posted September 4, 2013

This is a wonderful school. We have nothing but positive things to say about it.

I don't like want this school is doing as far as the uniforms goes. I think that this school should be more open about what is going on in the classroom.

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.
