Well really, I feel that Kingstree Junior High School is a nice school. They have some excellent teachers, the staff is friendly, and the rules are good. This school's students are always on task. They are Respectful, Responsible and Trustworthy. Those students and staff are one of a kind. I love KJHS because it is place where you can feel comfortable, like your at home. I love it a lot. That is why I'm proud to be apart of this school. I represent the Kingstree Junior High School Jaguars with PRIDE!

I really do love kingstree Junior High because its all about students who have a good work place. I like when they know it is a time to work and a time to play. But when students get in trouble they sometimes they think its the students but some times it does not always be students. I love the way students think and have different types writings. I feel that students at Kingstree Junior High should do less writing and more pratice on grammer and speech.

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.
