Posted May 23, 2005

We have two children currently enrolled in MM . This is a school where the teachers take a personal interest in each child. Both of our children have brought thier grade level up and we are quite happy with the results. One of our children had learning difficulties and was extremely shy. Through the help of the teachers and school activites he has caught up with students at his grade level and is now participating in sports and other school activities. I am particularly pleased at the projects to do away with bullies and to make the children aware of there own attitudes towards other people.

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.
