Ebenezer Avenue Elementary School Teachers have a genuine concern about all students. The teachers are fun, upbeat, and love teaching!
—Submitted by a parent


Posted September 18, 2008

This is my daughters first year at Ebenezer and I have to say that the school thus far has exceeded my expectations. My daughter is in a special needs class and the teacher and I have very open communication within many avenues. If we dont catch each other on the phone we do email each other as well. The front office people are exceptional and always willing to work with the families schedule due to my son's leukemia. The nurse calls to just keep me informed on little things. By far an excellent start to a great school y ear!

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.
