I hold Luther Vaughan in high regard.They have really been there for my disabled child.Icouldn't ask for a better school.The teacher's are great and alway's put what's best for the child ahead of everything else.The teacher's really take care of the children as if they were their own.The principal is active in every day routines with the children and right there for them.To help guide them and show them they are special.Luther Vaughan is as good as the teacher's and principal make it.That's why i think Cherokee County is blessed to have this school and staff.

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.
