i live right down the road from this school so my family has easy access to the school so transportation is not a prob. the teachers are like 2ND parents to us . however they could notify us of missing assignments a little quicker.


Posted February 27, 2011

Great school, Principle greats the children every morning.Teachers are helpful. I would really like more feed back when work is not being turned in instead of waiting after a week or 2 has passed. other than that my child loves the school and most of all he is excelling.

My kids love this school and the teachers are very willing to help! Could call more though when the kids aren't turning in homework or participating in class but I still give it an A!

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.
