Our son, Carson, attends North and we absolutely love it!!!! We could not ask for better teachers and faculty.

We switched our child here from Discovery and could not be happier. The school has wonderful veteran teachers. It also has discipline and structure which was lacking at my child's previous school.

My son has gone to North from Kindergarten and is now about to finish the 5th grade. He has done well there and has had great teachers. The school environment is both academically challenging and friendly. I, as a parent appreciate all that North has done for my son throughout the six years of his elementary education. Thank you.

I went to this I think years ago. I am now in the eighth grade at AR Rucker Middle school. I think North is a very good school to attend to. I can also ammit that they are tougher than most schools. Because before I was going to North I was going to Clinton, and I was making A's & B's. And when I went to North I started to fail, so that meant I had to work harder than what I was doing at Clinton. You have to focus more at North. So I just want to thank the teachers for making me work harder. This is coming from JaSheika medley. I hope you make the right choice for your childs sake. But you don't have to believe what I say. You have to do it for your self and you child or children. Good luck on your choice.

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.
