It was a nice building. Very nice building. The year my son attended nearly all the teachers were new & fresh out of school themselves. The socialist agenda is strong here. I tried to reach some sort of common ground but there's no arguing with this type of thing. I removed my son. God only knows how bad it is now with common core. (I shudder to think) Government indoctrination is not my cup of tea. If you like socialism & common core you will love this place, and it's a really nice building.

The Teachers,Principal and all other staff go above and beyond to make sure the children make it to the next grade and they are very good with the children and I like the way they have remodeled the school and made it more enjoyable for the kids.I hope my children can stay in this school until they move up in Grades. Thanks to the Westview Elementary staff for making school enjoyable for my son. Mrs.Waters

Mr Boston is a fabulous principal. All the teachers my children have are wonderful and so involved with the kids in their classes. My children have excelled under their supervision!

All three of my children attended Westview Elementary School, and I was very happy with the education, the communication, the professionalism of the staff and faculty, and the personal care and attention given to my children during their time there. My experience was that this was a dedicated faculty and administration who truly put the child first.

The key to success of any organization is the people~ and I can honestly say that the administration, teachers and staff at WVE are above reproach. They are exemplary in their professionalism as well as their humanism and care-giving. The students are challenged acadmically and guided personally. The consistent communication with parents is so important and appreciated! Thank you, WVE!

Westview Elementary is an incredible place to spend my day. I can't even call it work because the kids and my co-workers are so great. Sure, this year will be tough with renovation going on, but the thing I love about WVE is we will pull together and do a great job because that is how we are. Our school is clean, our students are well behaved, and our faculty are amazing teachers of texts as well as life lessons. I am sorry the one parent had a bad day and wrote a poor review. I know you won't find a better place in South Carolina for your child to experience the 4th and 5th grades.

This school has been wonderful to my family. They have continually challenged my children academically, while maintaining an atmosphere of acceptance and where appropriate discipline is taken. I am proud to be associated with Westview Elementary.

I loved teaching at this school! The administration was supportive, teachers were hard working, and the students had great personalities!

Westview is lacking in the idea of what a good school should be: an institution that promotes learning, encourages children to challenge themselves, and administers appropriate discipline. There are good teachers there, but not enough to make it worthwhile. Overall, this is not a safe environment nor is it one that models grade-appropriate learning. If I had a dollar for every grammatical, mathematical, or spelling error I found on worksheets that were sent home...

I think this is a great school! I go to this school and it is cool! My mom likes it to.

This School has no disipline what so ever. Kids are very very mean. The teachers just dont care what the kids are doing. One day my mom called the school because there wasnt a teacher on duty in the morning.

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.
