As a Hollywood Elementary parent and volunteer, I can say that at this school you feel at home. The staff is amazing and it is completely and totally evident that what they care about the most is the education of their students.

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.
