My son is in Kindergarten at this school and loves it! We love his teacher, Mrs. Santos. I feel he is learning a lot and is in a very safe environment. I have found that some of the teachers seem a little rude to some of the parents and are unprofessional when talking about the "bad" behavior out of that child in front of other parents. I think the school could be a bit more organized when it comes to communication and picking children up from school. I had to ask other parents in order to know where to go to drop off and pick up. Overall, very pleased with the school, enough that when we move onto main base, we are putting in a transfer for him to stay at Hunley Park.

My son loves this school. He is going into the first grade this year. The teachers here are very nice and care about the children. The principal is also very caring. He is very concerned with safety. The whole staff here is wonderful.

My child is in 5'th grade this year and I'm so sad that this is his last year at this school. When we started out in this school he was in kindergarten and Iwasn't to sure what to expect. It didn't take long for me to know that the teachers here really care for the students. My son fell in love with his second grade teacher. Mr.Olney is the greatest. He really pushed my son to go above and beyand .

We moved to the area from California and Hunley Park Elementary is far superior to our previos school. My kids love their new school and I can honestly say that the teachers here really do care for the children and their well being. I am also impressed with the measures that are taken to keep the kids safe and secure here. I recommend Hunley Park to anyone looking to move to the area.

This is our first experience with any school this year as our daughter is in kindergarten. So far, we have love everything about Hunley. It's so nice to see that her teacher truly does care about my daughter. I can really recommend Hunley Park as a really good school for anyone.

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.
