It does not seem that the teachers care about the students here. The school does not offer many challenging programs for students. Teachers do not seem to want to help students when they have problems with their work. Very disappointed in this school.

Old Pointe is an excellent school that cares about you child as well as their education. They are a great group of teachers and administration and I am proud to have my children attend!

The administrators and teachers at this school are all heart. The school is a close family that works together to achieve great successes. The state report card shows evidence of great academic gains and other successes. The Arts programs are exceptional, and I feel my child is becoming a well-rounded, educated, successful citizen thanks to the fabulous efforts of the entire school.

Old Pointe is a beautiful school. I am glad my children have had the opportunity to attend. Old Pointe teachers seem to really care about students and are willing to communicate with parents.

As a new student my child has enjoyed the teaching ability of his 4th grade teacher here at Old Pointe!

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.
