My grandson attends HPE - this is his first year. So far, I have been most favorably impressed with HPE. The school is colorful & attractive the teacher's rooms are bright and cheerful - this is a positive learning environment. So far the teachers seem most attentive to the student's needs. I am most happy to see the school striving for the awards equal the reading & writing skills they learn will help them all through high school. I believe this is a school who cares for its students.

This is our first year at HPE. I have one child in K5 and one in 4th grade. I feel very blessed the our children our here. We came from 5 years of being in really good christian schools in NJ and SC and feel that the HPE has more to offer. The teachers are better trained in the technology that is available today for schools and they really teach them. I haven't used the afterschool program so I can't comment on that. As far as the school concentrating on awards. I feel that the awards that are won in one year will help the school financially the next year.

My child is in the 4th Grade at H P E and so far so good. I think there could be more time spent one on one with a child that are having problems with certain areas instead of so much with the school obtaining award status after all the kids that complete the years at the school will be the reward of the school in what they are able to achieve. After school program has a lot to be desired in my opinion and yes my child was in the after school last year in 3rd grade. Room for improvement...always. Focus on the children...not the awards so much after all the children are our rewards aren't they!

My three children have attended HPE. Personally, I feel the school although good spends to much time on non-educational activites. There is way to much emphasis on the school name earning awards instead of the indivual child learing how to accomplish an assignment. I have seen many children held back and not given the one on one attention they needed to succeed.

I enjoy my child going to this school. We have been here since he was in kindergarten. We are now going to be in 4th grade and very excited. I also did the afterschool program and think it is great. The main reason I decided to live in Honea Path was because of the school. I love this school. The librarian is great. She really cares about our children. I really enjoy our principle also. He does his job well and loves the children. I am fortunate to send my child to a great school.

My child has gone to this school for 3 years now, there has been one one teacher there who we had a lot of problems with. All the other teachers there are very very helpful and caring to the students. The after school program is a joke, but hey its free daycare. Over all its a good school, but nothing to move to Honea Path for.

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.
