this is a terrible failing school in our district. I hate my child is zone for this sorry school. the pace of this school starts from the top of its organization and trickle down to the children education. If you can keep your child out of this school he or she is better off. If i could rate the school as a 0, I would do so.

Brewer isn't a parent-friendly environment. The principal and staff there are only nice to you when you don't have a problem. Bullying has been a big issue at this school for a lot of parents. Children are constantly taunted by their peers.When the parents complain they just say that they'll speak to the children causing the problems,but this just causes more problems for the children being bulied.They say that is is the child's responsibility to tell on the bully.This again causes even more problems.Once the bullied child strikes back,he is suspended because they say as part of the district policy is that no child has the right to touch another child.However,very little is done in the way of protecting these children and worse, it seems many of the teachers are as afraid of the bullies as the kids are. How could a parent support 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.
