With a new building and an excellent and devoted staff, NCES is really on their way to becoming one of the best elementary schools in North Charleston.


Posted March 30, 2009

Recently moved from out of state, I was very concern my child will struggle to adapt to the new school and the teachers will be calling me every day to tell me how my child was not responding...Wrong!! My kid loves the teacher, and even got enroll in a program after school, everybody is been so nice and helpful, was hard at the beggining with the uniform, but it sure feels good to get good notes even certificates for good conduct and improvement...Good Bless all the staff and teachers at North Charleston Elementary School!!!

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.
