My daughter has been at this school since kindergarten and is finishing up 5th grade. My other daughter just started this year. I have been very happy with the school. We have had some minor issues come up over the years, but all have been worked out to my satisfaction. Good cooperation from teachers and administration.

Below standard. Principal does a minimal job at best. Some teachers are better than others.

I am not at all happy with the curriculum or the quality of teachers they have. Not that some of the teachers aren't good. They did have one teacher win an award. I don't think the principal will be winning any awards though. The principal is responsible for the overall well being of the school and I feel the school has been let down. The school has potential but they don't seem to be seeking it.

This school is ok. They seem interested in my kids' education. Lately I have had meetings with both teachers and I asked them for extra worksheets to send home with my kids to help them. I haven't received them yet. They are concerned it's just to me they are not willing to go the extra effort to help them.

I still like the school. My son is excelling, but not at an unrealistic rate. That means he's struggling with some work, but studying has the desired results. This year's teacher is communicative and enthusiastic. No complaints here.

I have a child at this school and I love it! She has been there for three years and her sister will start next year. All the staff are great,if I ever had any problems or concerns they were taken care of immediately. Every teacher she has had have been awesome!I have no complaints,so far so good.

The county may label LES as the best, yet when my children were going to PTH they were getting better educated. Either way its playing Russian roulette on what teacher you get. LES also does not know how to deal with disciplinary problems.

I have two children at Lugoff Elem & one at Lugoff-Elgin Middle. I have been unable to get any of the teachers to tutor my children. Even when I volunteered to pay them. I have dealt with Lugoff Elem for 7 years and I continue to deal with this issue. I attended these schools as well but back then the teachers were willing to help a child that wanted to learn.

I love this school. I Have had two children go through LES. No child is ignored. The Teachers go beyond what is required to make sure each student will reach their full potential.This School has great leadership.

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.
