This has been a great school with good teachers. I have had a good experience with all three of my children that have attended there. They have meet all of their need and my children have excelled.

W.E Parker does not handle bullying at all. My daughter has been bullied since 4k and is now in 4th grade and the teachers and staff have done nothing but say she is just to sensitive. ( My daughter comes home crying and saying she doesn't want to live) I think Parker is to insensitive!

Great school with an opportunity for everyone to learn in a safe environment. They care about the students and give back to the 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.
