I have a problem with the teachers returning phone calls. We live in Ravenel and I can't afford the gas to go to the school. I have done all I can to stay in touch with the teachers, but they don't return the same.

The teachers are great at this school, but the leadership leaves a little to be desired. The small class size coupled with the close student teacher relationship creates a great learning opertunity

I have 3 children in this school and love it. I feel that my children are getting one of the best education possible in this area. The teachers are excellent and the new principal seems to be a go-getter. My oldest child is in the 8th grade and has been here since kindergaten. I have enjoyed it and will be sad when my oldest has to leave after this year.

It's a great public school! The teachers are experienced, involved, caring and committed. It's well managed. The facilities are older but the spirit for excellence is there. It's rated 'Excellent' both in quality and improvement.

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.

In 2012-2013 South Carolina used the End-of-Course Examination Program (EOCEP) to test middle and high school students in Algebra I, Mathematics for the Technologies II, Biology I, English I, US History, and US History and Government. The EOCEP provides tests in high school core courses and for courses taken in middle school for high school credit. The EOCEP is a standards-based test program, 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 a C or above.
