This school is on the rise. The administration has had some key changes and they have moved into a newly refurbished facility. Most of the problems listed in these 2 y.o. posts have begun to resolve. Don't be afraid to send your child to this school. It is a safe learning environment. If you don't believe me schedule a tour! You won't be disappointed

This school has been nothing but trouble for my child and me . Its very horrid seeing my child come home crying because of the bullies . The teachers dont do anything to stop it . Would I recommend this school ? No

We have been very pleased with this school. The building is old, but the faculty has just been wonderful. The Principal is a fine person loves the community.

This is a great school! Our sun has found himself here. The faculty is very caring and takes the time to get to know their students. Test scores are improving. We couldn't be mor pleased. The only negative is the age and layout of the building

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.
