Summit Drive Elementary is a fantastic school. The teaching staff cares about each and every student. They make an effort to know you and your children on a first name basis. I am grateful my children have been able to attend such a wonderful school. The principal is amazing. She is involved in more than any other principal I've known. She cares foremost about the students, about the staff, and of course how the school and programs are run. The community feeling is very powerful at Summit Drive, it is a great place to send your children.

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.
