We have the most fantastic group of kids and a staff that truly loves them.

I had just moved here from Florida about 7 months ago and I love Lesslie Elementary. They keep me informed with my childrens grades every week. The school in Florida did not do that.The taechers are wonderful and the principal is great.

I do not like this school very much. The principal isn't friendly at all. Most if the staff is nice, though. That is about the only highlight.

So far, my child is enjoying her year at Lesslie. We were re-districted here from Belleview and are glad that our teacher is one of the best in the district.

For the most part, this school is really good. The office staff is always friendly and very helpful, and most all the teachers are as well. We did happen to get a pretty lazy teacher this past year, but that could happen at any school really. Overall, my child liked this school okay.

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.
