My daughter studied in this school in 2013-2014 and I am very much dissapointed becuase of the oneside judgement and unruly outcome in my innocent daughters case.Even everybody knows my angel was made scapegoat the other kid has been left freely, but god is there and he is watching and oneday they will come to know this.

My daughter attended this school in 2010-11, and I was very disappointed. There was a lack of committment to hygiene, as the bathrooms were always out of soap and lacked proper maintenance. I was also disappointed with her teachers, as they did a poor job of notifying me when my daughter's performance needed improvement. The teachers showed little or no support when dealing with the disrespect she received from other students. Her bus driver was very inconsiderate as well.

Marshall is definitely moving forward! Several of my children have attended this elementary school and my grand-daughters are now attending. I have seen them through several administrations and teachers. The school is the largest elementary school in the area but operates very efficiently. They have several extended, enriching programs such as after-school drama, art, chorus, drumline, strings, cultural awareness, peotry, dance, and a few more. The school has also excelled in technology for the teachers to use when instructing as well as for the students to use as learners. They have also shared a lot of information with us (the families) through PTO and other 'family night' events. I can say that I have remained impressed with the determination of the staff (quality teachers who taught my children as well as new ones teaching my grands) and administration at Marshall. A school on their track can only get better!

I am very pleased with the changes that have occured at Marshall. The current administration 08-09 is working hard to put Marshall back at the top. The environment is very inviting. I recommend this elementary school highly.

This is the worst school. There are definetly safety concerns and poorly behaved students. Due to the lack of dicipline by staff. My child was picked on. Not to mention that fights among the students were reported both on the school bus and withen the school. I wouldn't recommend this school to any parent who is new to the Orangeburg area.

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.
