I like Daisy Elementary because of the smaller class sizes. The administration working with parents and children to match the right teacher to the right student. My son has attended Daisy 3-1/2 years now and I have been impressed with how they work well with the children. My son has learned so much with the new techniques added to the classroom - and this year especially having a fantastic teacher who is enthusiastic about learning, teaching, working with the children. I have found when there is a problem that the staff will work with both the parent and the child to resolve the issue. Daisy offers a great staff, from secretary to coaches, to the librarian, and so forth. I am proud to send my son to this school and wish there was a middle school exactly like this when he reaches 6th grade. We enjoy the year round atmosphere.

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.
