I am so glad to read that the school sounds so much better than when I was a student in the early 70's. The teachers were cruel and sadistic, the other kids were mean and uncontrolled. I had many horific expriences at this school to inculd frequent beatings by fellow students and sometimes the teachers as well. I am turely happy that it sounds so different.

The trouble I am having with the school is when my son gets in trouble and does something wrong, I dont hear about it until AFTER school is out. Never once have I been called and told about anything happening until after the fact. Thats one thing I wish would change but his teacher, she is amazing and helps him in so many ways!

I am a 35 year old parent. I went to this school and have seen 2 of my children go through this school. I could not say anything but great things about this school. Never a complaint. Should be voted one of the best schools in the country. I am so thankful that my children and I received the opportunity to be molded by such an impressive institution.

All 3 of my boys attend DES, and my neice. I have nothing but good things to say about DES, I have been in love with it since we moved up here. When their father passed, they went above and beyond to help us. The teachers are so caring and helpful.

I have 2 children out of des and 2 currently in des this school is incredible. They have made many achievments in the last couple of years. Including the problems with the comments below. I have never been happier with this school. The staff and the volunteers have really given their all here and should be awarded on this. For an elementary school i give this school an easy 5 these days.

I have had 2 children already go through dacusville elementary school. I have been very pleased. The teachers are great. I do agree with the other parent who wrote, there has been a lice problem. I have 2 more to go through the school. The school is very clean and organized and the learning experience is great my 2 children who have completed elementary school are both in honors classes in high school. The parent involvement is wonderful a real sense of community.

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.
