We are not in the Burgess school district, but I transfered my kids here because it's such an amazing school. I only wish I did it sooner!

My child started at Burgess Elementary this year and we LOVE it! The administrators, teachers, and staff members are all excellent. From the moment I drop my child off to the always smiling and friendly faces of the teachers at the car drop off each moring until I pick her up to the same smiling faces each afternoon, I know that my child is safe, loved, nurtured, and in the BEST school in the state of South Carolina.

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.
