O.P. Earle is a fantastic school with amazing teachers, students, administrators, and staff. The school is student-centered and has the most amazing art, music, and PE programs. O.P. Earle may be falling short with standardized testing, but there's so much more to a child's education and elementary years than testing. You can't put children's education in a box or base their learning on standardized testing in which all students are tested. Even the students who can't speak or read English or the struggling student who suffers from a learning disability are required to take the test. O.P. Earle is providing top quality education and learning experiences for my children.

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.
