North Myrtle Beach Elementary is the school my grandson attends. I am empressed how the grades are divided into different schools.


Posted October 24, 2006

I just relocated from Trenton, New Jersey and my biggest worry was how my 2 children would adjust to a new high school. I can honesty said that my children love this school. The teachers are awesome & very personable. The new school Principle Mr. Blanton is truly doing a great job.

We have been more than pleased with NMBE. We transferred our daughter out of another Elementary school for the third grade. Mostly because the treatment of children is so much better at NMBE. Here's the biggest advantages I see at NMBE: Great Parent involvement, the children who are at NMBE belong to parents who care, the energy level of the Teachers is great ,the Teachers really care here (our daughter really loves her Teacher and we can tell she loves her). NMBE has been great for our child. She will start 3rd grade next year and we are glad to say that she will be going to NMBE. We drive our daughter to NMBE every day and it is worth every minute on the road.

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.
