I went to Bonner as a child which was years ago, now both of my children attend. There have been wonderful changes to the school, and I am very pleased with the education that they are receiveing. They would continue to go to that school if we were not moving. It is centered to the safety and education of the students with lots of activities for them. They recently added the Academy of the Arts, which I think art is a very important part of education. Bonner is a great school.

I feel as though I am very qualified to speak about this school, since I have 4 children and my kids have gone to the BEST of the BEST of schools.. we have lived in 5 major cities and have even had some celebrity kids in class with my children when we lived on the West Coast.. we moved back to Berkeley county because that I where I am originally from. My youngest child loved that school. She said the students that went there were the most friendly of any other school she had attended AND the teachers really seemed to care about their education and were always very nice themselves. I have been all over this country and the it's true and funny that the best was right here at home.

I think that Bonner is one of the best elem. schools in the lower Berkeley county area. I have had three children attend the school (my oldest now 19 and my youngest now 6) and they have turned out to be remarkable children. I myself even attended the school growing up. The education is there for anybody that is willing to learn. Most of the teachers have been there for years which to me means that they are very confident and comfortable with they're teaching abilities and with the students.

Bonner Elementary has made many changes over the years in their curriculum. The staff and administration are eager to improve test scores and ratings, but still seem to be lacking the effort in pushing children to achieve more. Putting emphasis on improving test scores does not matter if you cannot increase the knowledge available to each and every student. There seems to be an acceptance for students who will not learn, instead of taking the extra time and effort to make sure they are taught some of the basic subjects. I would be embarrassed if any student were retained in my class, yet teachers don't think twice, much less become involved in a student's individual needs to grade advancement. Bottom line, Bonner needs to expect more from their students and push to achieve a better, smarter student with a stronger curriculum.

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.
