The K-2 teachers are great, but once you get into the upper grades the quality begins to decline (with the exception of 1 of the 5th grade teachers). The leadership is terrible and the teachers in the upper grades are unprofessional and rude.

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.
