Posted December 14, 2004

My son is attending this school, and I get to spend a lot of times as well as talking to some of the teachers at this school. In my opinion, this school has one of the best staff I have ever seen in a small school. Being a retired Army I know what pride is and what pride can do to an organization. Seeing what the staff of this school is doing for the children, I can tell that the staff has pride on everything they do. They go that extra mile on helping/teaching the children. The biggest problem that I see, is that we don't have enought parent envolvement. It's seems like it's always the same parent that I see at any school or PTO meetings that shows up. But yet, the first one to complaint is the one that never seen the inside classroom of their child.

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.
