This school has been the best for me and my son. Mind you this school is designed for the child who gets in trouble in regular school. They have boot camp and more one on one time with instructors.

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.

About the tests


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.

More from this school
  • We enroll students that have been expelled or dropped out. 85% of our students will return to traditional school within a year and continue their education in traditional school. We are a charter school that serves as an Alternative School to the two school districts existing Alternative schools. Without CHOiCES Charter School these students would end up in the criminal justice system because traditional school has expelled them with no other choices available.
