The bully problem in kindergarten of all grades is NOT addressed properly. My son is still harassed after 100 days of school.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted November 4, 2009

I love our School because the Teachers & Staff are so involved about helping our children learn the most they can! Incentives that make the kids want to learn. The excitement in my daughters voice when she wins Eagle bucks to get a prize with because she helped out or was good in class. The school holds many classes for families to learn to help their children with their class/home work. If there is something a family or individual needs & Alexander doesn't have it they go the extra mile to get what is needed.

Alexander is a school that is dedicated to helping students learn and achieve every goal possible. They have great leadership, starting from the principal on down. My son has learned a great deal at this school whereas compared to his learning at previous schools. In the community and surrounding places, everyone brags on this school and wishes that it was a middle and high school as well. Everytime my son tells people what school he goes to, they always say in response that Alexander Elementary School is a great school and that their kids went there and/or presently going there. I love it and not only is my son a part of it, I am as well. Thank God for this school!!

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.
