Do NOT send your children here if you can help it! This school unfortunately is subject to a very backwoods demographic that does not have an appreciation for education. The parents are more unruly than the children.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted March 10, 2011

Don't send your child here! We sent ours when we first arrived in the Aiken area, and I pulled them out for homeschooling because of the torment my kids underwent in their classrooms, hallways, and on the bus. I took the issues all the way to the principal, and nothing was done by the administration to better the situation. Two of my three kids came home crying every day. Their grades were failing as a direct result of their mistreatment by other children, and no one would do anything about it. We chose another area school the following school year, and all is well. I don't recommend Greendale Elementary at all!

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.
