IHES is hands down the best elementary school in Rock Hill. I have three children there this year and they're all being taught at their individual levels. Each student is just as important as the next, and the teachers truly care about each and every child. There is no worry if your child needs a little extra help, or maybe they are more advanced than the current curriculum. The teachers do such a great job at assisting those that need a little help, and they also find ways to keep children more advanced challenged and growing. It is truly a wonderful, safe environment. The students are also very respectful of their teachers - proof that they feel safe and taken care of.

India Hook is an amazing school with a wonderful staff. My daughter has some medical problems and everyone has not only been made aware but have helped her feel more confident. She is an advanced reader and loves going to school. As beautiful as it is to the eye to look at, inside the children are receiving a top notch education.

This school has Smartboards in every classroom, a beautiful library, and excellent teachers. Everything from the traffic flow to the PTA is run in such an organized and thoughtful manner - my son and I feel blessed to be part of the IHES family.

My daughter attended this school this past year, and we loved it! The staff is very well respected by the students, so there did not appear to be a lot of disciplinary issues. We wil miss this school so much now that we have moved, and hope for the best for everyone there. They were all such a blessing in our lives!

We moved to South Carolina about a year ago. My son previous grades at his old school were B's. He is currently a straight A's student and LOVES to go to school each day. The teachers and staff are very nurturing at India Hook. Teachers encouraged and challenged the students to do their very best while maintaining a fun and exciting atmosphere. I highly recommend this school for anyone moving to the Rock Hill area.

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.
