This school is great. My son just moved here so its a drastic change for us but his transition was so easy. Registration for him was a breeze. Keep up the good work Seahawks.

I can not say enough great things about this school,and the staff. If you are looking for a warm and welcoming environment for your child this is the school for you. The overall atmosphere of this school, is one that is very positive and encouraging. I have never seen a principle that is so hands of with the students, parents, and the staff. How many schools can you say the special ( ie.. gym, art, music, ect) teachers can remember the names of 700+ children. This school does, one that cares. A big thanks to the teachers and staff, for giving my child a wonderful 2 years!

The teachers and principals at this school are wonderful. My 9 year old grandson is doing excellent. Except for a few bullying episodes that were taken care of immediately by staff I have nothing bad to say about this school. I'm hoping next year at Intermediate School will go as well. Thank you Mrs. Nance and Mrs.Knight for all you've done!

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.
