Unimpressed. I have 2 children attending and neither seem to be challenged at all. We moved from Seattle last year and have felt this school is very "behind." Would love to see more enrichment and different forms of learning. My third grader is learning all sorts of exciting and interesting History by reading a newspaper about each topic each week and then taking a test. Wishing she had opportunities to do projects, posters, reports, more hands on types of ways to learn about topics. Art is a joke. Everything they bring home looks as though it came from a pre-school.

This is a wonderful school! The building in new and clean, with security cameras everywhere and separate wings for older and younger children which require you to be buzzed in through the office (after ID check and signing in). The academics are top notch as well. The curriculum seems faster paced, with an excellent staff to support the children and help them to learn and grow.

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.
