Both my children attend CSE and although the had a rough transition into the school 18 months ago Dr. B made sure they were both able to get their experience turned around. My children went from not wanting to go to school to becoming involved in a few different activities. I could not have asked for any better result. My sons teacher was an absolute joy to work with this past year. She was very encouraging and made 3rd grade an absolute joy for him. He made huge strides with Mrs.Blakely, she truly is an asset to the education system here. I hope this remains the norm for my children through out there educational experience!

i am a student at the middle school and the school is overcrowded and my sister used to go there until the 2010-2011 school year when they were very overcrowded. so we sent her to live in bates-burg with a family member and she had no problems however when she came home later on she went to forts pond and at that school she seemed so sad and she would always get in trouble. that school seems very strict and a uneasy school compared to forts pond and bates-burg.

I am a teacher and a parent at CSE, and I couldn't ask for a better place to work or to send my children!

Carolina Springs Elementary School is an extraordinary educational instituition. This school has genuine caring teachers, staff, nursing personnel, and cafeteria staff that plays a team role in taking care of nurturinga and educating children. Carolina Springs Elementary has a special respect for family and community ties, because it truly does take a community to raise a child in the way, they should go.

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.
