The principal of this school is terrible. If you call and ask him a question, he has no idea what the answer is, nor where to find the answer. The teachers have little to no communication with the parents, which is fine if you're a lazy parent who doesn't care about his/her children. We get fliers sent home promoting activities that happened two weeks ago. My children have had the same library books for three weeks straight. The homework isn't graded or even checked. The teachers seem friendly, which is good, but the majority of the staff seems incompetent, which probably stems from the principal's extremely poor leadership. This school might be OK by Southern standards, but coming from the North, it's substandard at best.

My son has attended YRES for the past 3 years and has had great teachers who sincerely care about their students. They go over and beyond what is required for those students who need extra help. The new administrative staff has also been a great addition. I am greatful my son has been able to attend York Road!

The school has very poor leadership. There is not enough done for the good students who make good grades and dont get into trouble. They District Office seems to think that as look as the test scores are OK it doesn't matter. They need to come bvisit and talk to some parents.

This school is typical of all schools in RH, they use old school methods, like punishment, to to gets results. Punishment teaches a child nothing. They have round holes and if your child is a round peg, the child will do fine at this school like any other school, if your child is a square peg, the child will major difficulties. Poor leadership within this school. Research proven concepts like positive reinforcers, which require the educators to think, are alien concepts to them. The District's Superintendent and other administrative people need to be run out of town. For cheerleading parents who disagree with these opinions, wait till your child needs help, then pass judgement. There is no accountability within this school district. Taxpayers give them more money, and they build more buildings, and then they pat themselves on the back for the good job their doing.

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.
