I have 2 daughters in Belle Hall, 5th and 2nd grades. I am very, very pleased and my girls very happy. The teachers, staff members, principal, everybody is so nice. It's like family. My girls are in good hands. We love Belle Hall Elementary!

Couldn't be happier. Our kids completed grades 3-5 at Belle Hall and both had a great experience. Teachers are very caring and academics are superb.

Great school! Good at welcoming new students. Challenging curriculum with age-appropriate amount of homework. Teachers work well together. Full use of town rec center next door.

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.
