My grand daughter attended kindergarten and she absolutely loved her teacher Ms. Mimms. Madison really wanted to learn , she would practice at home so she could do better the next day. I do not think you could find a more helpful ,friendly and competant staff than Merriwether! Great Job Y'all! We are looking forward to first grade! Thankyou


Posted September 25, 2005

This is school is wonderful. I am so pleased with my daughter being apart of this school. The principal is one of the best principals I have ever met or experienced myself while I attended school. He is very involved, knows the names of every child that passes by him, and everyone loves him. He takes pride in his school, staff and students. If he was to ever leave, Merriwether would never be the same. I had a mild complaint last year while my child was in kindergarden and Mr. Hewitt took care of it right away.

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.
