Roebuck Elementry School is a wonderful school with the best teachers I have ever had the pleasure to work with. The principal is outstanding she knows every child by name. And is always on top of things she runs an outstanding school.

My children came to Roebuck from another local elementary school. I would not transfer them to another school for anything. The staff at Roebuck are extremely friendly and went out of the way to make my children and myself feel right at home. The children there are taught that it doesn't matter where you come from or how you got there everyone should get along, no matter race, finincial status, etc... I love this school!!!!!! GO EAGLES!!

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.
