I am newly shifted to Greenville and looking for a good school for my 6 years old son. I was just browsing thru to see school rating in the surrounding area of greenville. My friend praised a lot about this school and suggested me to admit my son in this school only.

I love how the parents, teachers, and students work together to make this school a pleasant learning environment. The PTA works very hard to keep parents informed and welcomed. Pelham Road Elementary is a breath of fresh air!

My family has been involved with PRE for 3 1/2 years. We absolutely love it! The parent participation is amazing. This is their second year in their new $11 million dollar building. The teachers are outstanding and truly care for their students. The related arts, P.E., Art and Music, are an added bonus. My kids love their time in the computer lab. Everyone is so helpful and friendly. The only downfall, in my opinion, is their lack of extra-curricular activities for the kids. They do offer chorus and puppeteers but that is only for fourth and fifth graders. Overall it is an excellent school and I am so very happy that my children are able to attend it.

Top notch! Great facilities (just finished all new construction), excellent teachers, good principal. Pelham Road provides a solid foundation (academically & socially) for kids to get a head start.

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.
