My child has attended Sheridan since pre K and he is now in the 3rd grade. He will not be attending next year because I have not gotten positive feedback that would help my child excel in 3rd grade. There are no programs to encourage the children at Sheridan like they have at other elementary schools in the district. Parent involvement is good, which is the only plus. However, administratively, this school is lacking what it takes to make the grade in my book.

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.
