I love KES. My child has learned a lot in his class last year. He was in the fourth grade and I think his teacher was great. He loved his teacher very much and he spoke about her quite often during the summer months. Great school keep up the good work and excitement with the children.

I do agree with the ratings. I am not that pleased at all with the limited schools they have in williamsburg county. She has been a Superintendent Student since she started school. As soon as she gets in Elemetary School she drops to Honor Roll. I did not choose her teacher last year and I believe they stuck her in a class with children who just did not care whether they learned or not! I am not pleased with the school at all because I think they should have more one on one with each student so they can find out where the kids weak points are. They tell you that everything starts at home and I do agree, it does start at home but teachers need to take responsibiliy as well!!! They are not perfect. They need to stop passing kids that are related to them or someone they know.

Kingstree Elementary School is in a perfect location. The school is big and is very well kept. The hall decorations are great and any child would be happy to see it.

Kingstree Elementary is a good school. It welcomes parent visits. It offers great after-school tutoring for homework and for the PACT exam in May.

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.
