This school is awesome! I have never been to a better school than HPMS. I have been to Palmetto Elementry and Belton Elementry, and Honea Path Middle is still better!
—Submitted by a student


Posted May 26, 2006

The Administration does not communicate effectively with parents when serious situations arise. Recently when my child was beat up at school, no teacher/staff was around to put a stop to it. When my child went to the office to tell the VP, the school did not even bother to call me. Teachers do not apply the demerit code consistently to all students. The school does not even follow their own guidelines (posted on their website) when admitting students to the After-School program.

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.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 South Carolina used the End-of-Course Examination Program (EOCEP) to test middle and high school students in Algebra I, Mathematics for the Technologies II, Biology I, English I, US History, and US History and Government. The EOCEP provides tests in high school core courses and for courses taken in middle school for high school credit. The EOCEP is a standards-based test program, 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 a C or above.
