North Middle School has less than 500 students and the staff is very friendly. The school has a favorable teacher to student ratio and it is conveniently located on an easy access avenue. Most students live within five miles of the school.


Posted March 7, 2012

This school is amazing! The staff is very friendly and always have been. Its a small school so drugs, gangs, and violence is a minimum at this school. I will send my kids here until they graduate in 3 years because they say they absolutely love it. Its very clean and has a very good curriculum in the classroom. It's also set up to where you can graduate with 36 credits instead of the 24 credits you must have to graduate. The honors courses are challenging but if your child is in honors they're in there to be challenged. I recommend this school to EVERYONE!

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.
