All three of my kids have attended this school and I couldn't ask for more love or attention from the teachers. The staff at this school are wonderful!
—Submitted by a parent


Posted February 5, 2009

My oldest son has gone tothis school since the beginning in 4K and it has been a wonderful experience so far. He has loved all of his teachers, but this year his teacher is really the best one yet! Ms. Robbins, 3rd grade teacher, is wonderful with the children! She really cares about the children and has a great relationship with them and their parents! My son loves to have her as a teacher. She gets the kids excited about school and learning. She needs to be applauded, Thank you Ms. Robbins! I am also proud of their Merit Program. It gives the children who need that extra challenge a challenge. I also give high praises to Mrs. Dial , Merit Teacher. I highly recommend this school to anyone! Also, all of the staff has been wonderful including the Principal, Mr. Long.

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.
