Ruby Elementary scored a 100% on the ESEA - Federal Accountability Act, which was tops in the district, region, and state. It's a small school which allows them more time to spend toward individual needs in their students. My son is struggling with ADHD and will soon be tested for Dyslexia and the Principal has helped with the process. The school nurse has treated my son like he's one of her own. I just love the down home feel you get at Ruby Elementary!

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.
