Walker Gamble is a public school that is set up more like a private school. The classrooms are small, teachers actually seem to care. They take so much time to make school programs special for the students, all while keeping Faith in the classroom. A+ Rating from this mom.

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.
