I love this school because we have so much securit, like getting our adgenda signed to go places, signing in to the library, and cameras in the hallways, so no one could ever hurt you.

The faculty at North Central Middle School is the finest group of educators I have met. The teachers are knowledgable and really interested in their students. The environment is warm and inviting.

I think that your school is really helping my child alot. I have seen a big improvement in her since I moved her there. I want to thank everyone for there hard work on my little girls education. I also want to thank Mr. Charles King for his help. Tell him that he is missed by lots of students and parents.

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.
