Carolina Elementary is a wonderful school. The teachers and Donna Barrett are the best. I love Carolina Elementary School. We just need more like this one.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted March 26, 2009

The potential student to succeed is here at Carolina Elementary. The Mrs. Barrett, the principal, is one of the most caring, active and responsible I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. The of teachers as well have one desire; to see their students succeed academically and as properly raised citizens. There is compassion as well as accountability at Carolina Elementary School. They certainly have the familial feel of a high end private school. Mrs. Barrett is certainly the not so secret secret to this success.

Carolina Elementary provides a fundemental education for me and with a miniscule amount of improvement will be the best school in Hartsville.

Carolina Elementary offers a setting as close to a private school as you can get. It is a very small public school with rising potential to be the finest school in Hartsville. With more parent involvement, it will soon be the best 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.
