My children and I have had nothing but fantastic experiences at HHI SCA. The teachers have been wonderful, open, easy to communicate with, loving, etc. All things a parent hopes for in a teacher. The administration is also very easily accessible, and eager to help your child have the best experience they can. My children have continued to thrive at this school.

This school is a great enviroment for every kid. I loved the interest they gave my son during difficult times in his grades. He continues to grow and florish with his education. I as a parent see it in my child's learning everyday. I'm so greatful and content. Thanks everyone!

We love this school. Our children have really done well here. We had wonderful teachers this past year who really cared about our children. I am sure there is good and bad in every school. We have only good things to say about this school and it's teachers.

My son loves this school! He has thrived here and been well motivated by most of his teachers. He did have one teacher that was inferior and the next teacher superior. The bottom line is it is the teacher your child gets that determines the outcome of the year regardless of the school you are in. The principal loves the kids and really listens to a parents concerns.

Unfortunately I don't feel that a large part of the teaching staff really cares about the students they are teaching. I have seen some children not even brought into participation in the class , with others labeled as 'Bad' from previous grades & therefore, not given a chance to show their true potential. Childrens self esteems are being built in elementary school & this treatment can make or break a child's spirit.

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.
