The entire school culture at Gable is excellent. All 3 of my children just rave about assistant principal Mr. Hughes. He is so friendly, but does an outstanding job keeping students in line. I appreciate him being there and also the great job the others and the teachers do also.

Gable is an excellent school! My child has attended Blue Ribbon schools in the past and Gable ranks right up there with them. Gable has motivated my child. He is excited and happy to go to school everyday! The work is academically challenging, the class sizes are relatively small, and the teachers really seem to care. The school keeps you informed of what is going on and is run very efficiently.

As a family who has moved around every few years and who has experienced other schools and districts, I can honestly say that Gable is one of the best schools we've ever experienced. The teachers are superior! They challenge the students to reach their highest potential. We have never had difficulties with moving to other schools after having attended Gable. The teachers prepare the students for any challenge. The administration is awesome. The principal is somewhat inexperienced but has proven herself worthy of the position. She has grown with each year she has been with Gable. In my opinion, there is no finer school!

Excellent administration that sincerely cares about the success of the students. L.E. Gable is very fortunate to have Ms. Bush as their principal. She is very dedicated and works very hard to help the kids succeed academically as well as learn to make good choices in life.

Several concerns: children locked outside after school is suppose to be open in the mornings -no supervision. Teachers do not respond in a timely matter, and in some cases not at all. very limited communication with parents. Seems to be lack of strict leadership overall-administrative as well as between student and teachers.

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.
