I THINK IT IS A GREAT SCHOOL BECAUSE MY DAUGHTER ENTERD THE SCHOOL HALFWAY THROUGH KINDERGARDEN AND IS GOING TO FIFTH GRADE AND HAS BEEN IN THE SAIL PROGRAM SINCE 2 GRADE
—Submitted by a parent


Posted May 18, 2013

My daughter switched schools mid year due to our move out of state. We were nervous about her starting at Ladson Elementary because of bad reviews and she came from a school rated a 9 out of 10. I can honestly say I am so happy with this school and the wonderful staff. Everyone at this school goes out of their way to make you feel welcome. The students love the teachers and are excited about learning. The communication between staff and parents is very open and you are encouraged to participate as much as you can. My husband and I were also very impressed with the safety precautions that are taken on a daily basis.Overall this is a great school and you should definitely ignore the bad remarks!

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.
