This school is great! I go here and love there motto, goodwill is the monarch of our house. The teachers make learning fun! Nadia L.


Posted October 20, 2007

I get total interaction with her teachers and could not be happier with the results. The incentive programs to encourage these kids to but there best foot forward is awesome. I would not move my child back to private school if they paid me to let her go there. HHE has a diverse racial population.

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.
