Love it, love it, love it! Both of my sons attend PRES, Pre-K and 2nd grade. This is the 3rd school my older son has attended and by far the best! Everybody is involved, parents, teachers, principal, staff, EVERYONE. I have never had so much communication with the teachers as I do now or the principal for that matter. I had a concern on the first day of school and she sat down with me in her office, actually listened to me, and acted on it right then and there. She is always available as are the teachers. The staff is welcoming, friendly and extremely helpful. They take the time to get to know you and remember you and your children. After school pick up is a breeze and safe as can be. They knew me and who I was picking up by the second day. A+++

I have two boys currently enrolled in PRES and I would never want to change their school. The staff is wonderful, the environment couldn't be better and I have never found such an abundance of optimism within a school!

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.
