I love this school! I, myself, both of my sisters, and both of my children all graduated from Henry Timrod Elementary School. One of my nieces attended this school before she moved out of state and another one of my nieces currently attends this school. The faculty and staff are excellent! This school is educational, professional, fun, and friendly! Teachers love parent involvement. I use to volunteer many hours towards educational activities, as well as school trips and parties. My children really enjoyed this school!

Could not ask for a better school the staff is excellent. Teacher's know all the parents by name as well as there students. To me it like sending my child to a private school. My oldest child went there for 4k thru 1st and then we moved and he went to Wallace Gregg ( Terrible School) and since the choice school has come out I switched both of my children back to Timrod.

I have a 5 year old at this school. So far, the school year has been a great success. I communicate with her teacher on a daily basis reguarding her homework and her behavior. I have also volunteered at this school. Everybody is friendly and courteous. I know that my child is in good hands at Timrod because she always looks forward to going to school!

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.
