My son began Cannons in the 1st grade after attending a private school for 4 years. He was more advanced than the average 1st grader and the principal and staff welcomed the opportunity and challenge of establishing an individualized education plan to encourage my son's continued growth and advancement. My son continues to perform above grade level and has simply thrived since becoming a part of the Cannons Elementary community. Kudos to the entire staff who really do follow the credo of 'putting children first.'

This is a great elementary school. A very safe environment for your children. Small Class size. The principal is great and knows every child by name. The teachers care about each student and want them to do their best. Parents are welcome to be as involved as they want to be.

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.
