loving everything about this school.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted May 19, 2004

Armstrong is extremely lax about many issues that should be taken more seriously. For instance, my child was sent to the healthroom and I was not notified that she was complaining of being sick. After school that day I had to take her to the dr. where she was diagnosed with strep throat and then two days later developed Scarlet fever. When she was in her first few weeks of K-5 she wet her pants on two different occasions and I was never notified, also she has come home with a fever higher than 100 on three different occassions. My son was slapped in the face by another student and nothing was done about it until I called and made them address the situation. I do not feet that the students are taken seriously enough or supervised properly.

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.
