Posted April 20, 2012

The current (2011-2012) principal of this school thinks that if someone fears him they respect him. As a volunteer he has ALWAYS been disrespectful and has NEVER thanked me for driving 40 MINUTES to help. Thankfully I believe in the students and the teachers and NOT THE ADMINISTRATION of this school.


Posted November 25, 2006

I have had 3 children attend from this school. One is a pre-k teacher in this area and graduates from aiken tech in august (bs degree), one will be attending usc in the fall of 2007 and the other clemson in the fall 0f 2007. The teachers are very caring and i think the smaller class rooms are better for the children. Its not just the highschool its the entire community that makes this school 'the best little school in sc'.
