my daughter was in second grade in this school for the first few months, we had to pull her out and homeschool after halloween. She kept being bullied by her peers, and we got no support from the second grade teacher . Horrible experience for both my little girl and us.

Very proud of all the students, faculty and staff for shining so bright in this community. The effort shows and makes it so enjoyable to be a part of such a close, caring 'family'. Both of my children have gone all the way through Sue Cleveland (youngest graduating 5th grade this year) and they are very bright, well-behaved and ambitious students! I would recommend anyone living in this school's district to give them a try! You will be impressed!!

Sue Cleveland has some great teachers at the School and A great Prinicipal... But the office Ladies can be very rude, i don"t like their attitude at all . They were very disrespectful to the parents That came in the office while i was there...I amost apologized for upseting their morning..And also i have seen them on other day"s rude to the children for being late for School...This ALL is uncalled for...

All of the teachers and staff make school an enjoyable experience for children. There are so many activities going on all throughout the year. The teachers here are of the highest quality and truly care about their students. There are many students here that are disadvantaged, but all of their needs are met and their families are helped. Going to school here definately prepares children for middle school and makes them excited to learn. The environment here is something that leaves everyone feeling great. The teachers and staff all work VERY hard to have an amazing school like this.

this school is awesome!!!! everyone is friendly and makes learning very exciting for the kids. I have sat in on many of my kids classes and I am ready to go back to school. I have 4 kids attending this school and I am a high school graduate, but I can not ever remember having so much fun learning. It seems the kids learn without evening knowing they are learning. They think they are just having fun. Dicipline is through love and logic which the kids don't realize they are being diciplined. It's great to be a part of this educational environment. The faculty knows and staff knows almost every person that enters that school by name because everyone is so involved in activities. This is a family education for sure. Don't you want to go where everybody knows your name.

I am looking forward to the coming school year and all the exciting things for the children and parents to be involved in at the school. As SIC chair, I would like to invite all parents, grandparents, guardians and older siblings to participate in the numerous activities and groups associated with Sue Cleveland Elementary School. If we want to help our children truly succeed in life, we must begin by getting involved! I'm so glad to be a part of the great things going on at Sue Cleveland, and I sincerely hope you will get more involved as well. Enjoy the rest of your summer! August is just around the bend!

When my child started Sue Cleveland we said we would try it, and if she didn't like it we would leave. We have loved our school. The staff really care about the children. Parents, teachers, and students alike all want to make a difference.

Having caring teachers and a principal who cares about every student is what makes this school the best! All teachers, staff and principal went above and beyond to make sure that my children learned and excelled in 2002-2003 school year!

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.
