I'm very dissappointed in the lack of volunteer opportunities, the communication skills of the staff. My kindergartener tells me he hates school and that he does not want to go. He used to love school and this breaks my heart. We are currently researching other possibilities.

I have two students at Mount Gallant. I have had good experiences as well as bad ones. There are excellent teachers at this school but we have experienced some that do not relate well to students or parents. My child has asked questions when she doesn't understand and had the teacher to just turn and walk away and then been scolded later because she didn't ask questions. One of her classes is very loud and disruptive. Some serious discipline problems are sometimes left up to parent to try and resolve with other parents. When my child is being mistreated at school she sometimes does not tell teachers because she gets in trouble as well. So usually it is left up to parent to talk with teachers, parents, principal, etc. to resolve problem. VERY EXHAUSTIVE!

I love Mt. Gallant Elementary and so does my daughter. The one thing that really impresses me about the school is how much the principal is involved in the activites that go on in the school. How many principals can name the majority of the students in his school and I am not referring to the trouble makers. Mr. Beard is wonderful, and his positive attitude as a positive effect on his entire staff.

My daughter is going into second grade, I have been so pleased with the education she has recieved that when buying a home I wanted in that school district. I am pleased with the involement of Mr Beard, he cares about every student who walks through his doors. This school had many programs for parent involvement, Mt Gallant encourges parent input. I look forward to the next three years Bryce will attend.

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.
