Just want to take a moment to thank everyone at Hursey Elementary. It would take up too much space to thank everyone by name, but Princial Conroy is the best! She goes above and beyond to take care of her children. Love her and Thanks to all that have helped K get to where he is today. That would not have been possible without you! Thank You!

A school with wonderful climate and culture. It opened the first Montessori primary school (2 primary classes for 3-4 and 5 year olds) in a Title I school. It has improved every year.

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.
