My Son really enjoys JMS. he transfered into the 6th grade there. he has found many new friends, but has found it more academically challenging than his previous school. His grades have improved in spite of this and his teachers are very helpful in getting him into the upper part of his class.

I think this is a great school for children to attend. My child has just moved to Johnsonville Middle School, and tells me he loves it! I think all parents should consider their children to attend Johnsonville Middle 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.

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.
