My daughter has been attending Bridge Creek since the first grade. Our family has enjoyed her attendance here and the wonderful education she has been receiving from her teachers. Bridge Creek is all one can ask for in an elementary school. I highly recommend!

BCE is an amazing school! They have friendly teachers and administrators. My son and daughter are both there and they both received top notch educational experiences. Consider yourself lucky if you are zoned for Bridge Creek!

The staff there are amazing. It is warm and friendly once you enter the front door. My daughter has been going there for three years and loves school. She's learned so much and is above her grade on the dra reading scores. I'm so impressed and thankful she had such a great start in her education. Sadly, we are moving. I hope her next school will be just as good.

My children, ages 9 and 11, attended Bridge Creek Elementary for the last two years. We had a great experience and they both received a top notch education.

My daughter started Kindgertan at BC and will complete 1st grade there as well. This school has a ton of parent involvement which is great. You definatley have to arrive early to get a parking spot when you attend any of the school events. The teachers and Staff have proven to be true professionals. My child has been challenged academically and has excelled. They keep you informed of updates by email and phone. Principal leadership is awesome as well. You will be happy with this school.

The staff really cares about their students. The school counselor gives school supplies to those who can't afford them.

This school is completely outstanding! My son attended 1st grade and part of 2nd grade, and my youngest son started Kindergarten there. Best teachers ever. Very caring (genuinely) and helpful. I'm very thankful my sons were able to attend school here.

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.
