I have been teaching at Saluda Trail Middle School since its opening. Our school is one that fosters exploration, learning, and good character. The students are challanged by their teachers daily and teachers are available to students to hear about problems they might be having in school. This willingness to listen makes our school a family. We have recently be approved as a MYP school by IB Schools Inc. We are commmitted to having students learn about other cultures in order to make our world a better place to live.

My child spent 6 years in a catholic school through 5th grade. We always assumed our child would continue through middle school at the catholic school he attended. As the end of 5th grade neared we began to feel the need to explore our possibilites. We were moving and our new house would be in the Saluda Trail district. After meeting with several administrators and taking our child on a tour, we, as a family, decided it was time for a change. This move has been the best thing we have ever done for him. He has been challenged academically, like he hadn't been before. The teaching staff is just fantastic and the administration is terriffic also. The growth we have seen in our child from this experience has been exceptional. I am thankful everyday for the opportunity my child has at this incredible middle 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.
