We did a lot of research for schools before we relocated to SC. We decided on Oak Pointe Elementary School & are glad we did. Fantastic staff, super friendly Principal, easy registration, clean school, lots of parking, great sports programs for the kids, excellent teachers, & happy kids. No bullying, no drama. Very caring staff. My child was doing very well at her previous school, but after relocating, we discovered that Oak Pointe was a little further ahead on the math, science & history. She soon caught up & ended the year with high grades. We like that this school is a little more challenging...but not to the point that the child will struggle. Most schools are "easy breezy" & some kids don't retain a lot. Oak Pointe is a wonderful school & I can see why they have won so many awards.

My children have been enrolled at Oak Pointe for the last 5 years and have enjoyed it tremendously. The teachers and staff are very caring, and the facilities are top notch. Parents are encouraged to be involved, and the office staff is friendly and considerate. Students are taught good values as well as being challenged academically. We have been very pleased.

We have a fourth grader here...LOVE this school. The principal is awesome, they've 'community' meetings every Friday and each member of this community has ownership of his/her community. We were rezoned from Ballentine Elem. and have been nothing but pleased here. I feel my child is getting a wonderful education as well as learning to be a good citzen. Kudos and thank you to District 5 for an excellent school.

My son was a K-5 student and I thought it was a great school. The teachers were very excited to have parent participation, and kept us posted on things going on very well.

We have a second and fourth grader at Oak Pointe. We were very pleased with the first year at the school. It was very well organized. The teachers and administrators were pleasant and quite capable. The teachers my children had were outstanding. We couldn't have been more pleased.

Oak Pointe is an awesome new school in Lexington Richland District 5. The teachers and staff are highly motivated and trained. All classrooms are equipped with the very latest in technology. The parent support is phenomenal. It is easily one of the best schools in the state.

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.
