We have been very pleased with the experience our children have had so far at Dutch Fork Elem. Every teacher has been impressive and the parental involvement is strong. We appreciate the way the teachers have challenged our oldest child and allowed her to alter or expand assignments to achieve her 'vision'. We also have a high comfort level with the administrative staff due to the interest and concern they have shown for each of our kids.

Dutch Fork Elementary school is great! I went there when I was a kid, I'm now 35 and my son started there last year in K5. Mrs. Lominack, the principle, is one of the best principles I've ever met. She really does care and so does the rest of the staff!

Dutch Fork is a very great School and it is located in a very good area. I moved from the upstate and bought a home in Irmo and I was very impressed with how the school was so informative about everything and my child loves it, the teachers are great the principle is so nice overall its a great school.

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.
