Felton Laboratory is a school where instruction is stressed and provided for every ability level. Class sizes are small and designed that way so that every child is reached academically and socially. The students are well-behaved and extremely cordial.

This school has really good teachers, but the children are TERRIBLE. They are not receptive to new students. Many fo the students are bullies and have tunnel vision. Many of the students curse and use sexually explicit terms. The administration, teachers and parents are all in a cliche where nothing happens to the children who break rules because they have to keep the school open and one hand washes another. The adults aree either is in a social group together or attend the same church. If you want your child bullied and you wanna explain sexually explicit term to your young, innocent child take them to Felton. The positives definitely do not outweigh the minuses in the elementary school. . I regret taking my children there. It is not the Felton of the 80s or 90s

Well, Dr. Leaphart does not return calls from people who want to help out. Not even calls from parents. I know parents who are pulling their hair out because she never gets back to them. Dr. Leaphart's voice mail box is always full. Otherwise, she is doing a wonderful job. I wonder who supervises her. I would love to have a chat with that person.

This school stands out for me because of the small class sizes and the more personalized experience that students receive. However, I have observed several teachers that were below standard and did not appear to know how to deal with children, behaviorally, or teach them academically. I would say that teachers need more training in their content areas. They have increased their student activities although. I believe they need to do more for upper level students (i.e., a football team). I have nothing bad to say about the principal other than she did not return any of my phone calls during the year. I am not sure about her leadership skills. A good place for students that need smaller class sizes.

Decreased state funding, and leadership turn-over, has seriously affected programs and teacher morale. There is considerable parent involvement but it too lacks enthusiam. Most teachers seem to enjoy what they do but are concerned only about test results. Felton does well at the primary level but has seen declines at the upper middle school level. We are pleased with our son's grasp of the basic skills but feel he has missed out on being exposed to world view. Felton reflects the need to have a serious analysis of public education in rural America yet is the best of a bad lot. If one must be in Orangeburg, Felton is probably where your elementary aged child should attend.

fls needs a new principal that knows how to keep things organized.

Our school has started to loose its stamina under the leadership of Dr. Lancaster. Teachers are give there all but the morales is so low that it seems to be affecting the children and the outcome of their work. We ask parents do not want to be involved because our children complain that the director does not listen to them and she never have time for their complaints rather its about academics or sports, or extracurricular activity.

I have been going to felton for several years now and this year we have a new principal. Her name is dr.Lancaster. Whenever we try and ask her something she says she has a meeting to go to or she can't talk right now. I think she has no time for us at all. Dr.Mac was our best principal ever. He gave us his all and we will never forget him.

Felton Lab is a school that encourages their students to work harder. There are some changes that need to be completed but, overall it is an excellent school. I have been going to Felton since kindergarten and it has really changed over the past year. This past year we have had girls and boys basketball teams, band, chorus, step team, and cheerleading. They are all great. The parents at Felton are really envolved with the school. The academic program, PACT Academy, really did help our students on the PACT. We also had the National Junior Honor Society which was for students who excelled in all academic areas. Our motto is Excellence Without Excuse. -7th grade honor student

I have two children that attend Felton Laboratory School. One is in the fourth grade and the other in the seventh grade. I have seen tremendous improvements in both of my children s grades. They truly enjoy the new school activities that Dr. McIntosh has implemented since he has been at Felton Laboratory School. They are learning responsibility and punctuality. The extracurricular activities that Dr. McIntosh has instituted at Felton Laboratory School has been fulfilling and rewarding for the children. Keep up the good work Dr. McIntosh and we look forward for good things in the future.

My son has been a student at Felton Laboratory School since Kindergarten. He is now in the third grade. I am tremendously pleased with the progress he has made. The Faculty and Staff exemplify what every school needs to function properly. Academically my son performs on the level of most fifth graders. The small classroom setting and discipline is an asset to the educational process. Felton Laboratory encourages students to become professionals, and builds self-confidence.

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.

The different student groups are identified by the South Carolina Department of Education. If there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 South Carolina used the End-of-Course Examination Program (EOCEP) to test middle and high school students in Algebra I, Mathematics for the Technologies II, Biology I, English I, US History, and US History and Government. The EOCEP provides tests in high school core courses and for courses taken in middle school for high school credit. The EOCEP is a standards-based test program, 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 a C or above.
