Love Knightsville Elementary! All four of my kids have gone here. Reminds me of the elementary I went to a million years ago!

I absolutely LOVE this school!! I would not want my kids to go to any other school! While all of DD2 is amazing, Knightsville takes the cake!! I have a 2nd grader and a 1st grader that attend this school and every teacher they have had is GREAT! I am also a substitute teacher and Knightsville has the best work environment I have ever been in! All the staff is extremely helpful and always has a smile on their face!

We loved Knightsville Elementary School. I had one daughter in Pre-K with Mrs. Wood and Mrs. Gibson and a 2nd in Kindergarten with Mrs. Guilmette and Mrs. Hudson. This was the first year of school for both girls and we couldn't of asked for a better experience. This school offers caring teachers who would do anything to help the children in their class succeed. Both my girls' have been given a great start in education. We have recently moved and won't be attending Knightsville this year, but the school will be greatly missed.

My son is in the Autism class. Ms. Piresol is an excellent teacher and her staff is wonderful. I love this class! My only wish is my son could have been in this class earlier, and not have to leave next year.

All three of my children went to Knightsville Elementary. While we could easily afford to send our children to private school, and live in a neighborhood where many families do, we were very happy and satisfied with the educational opportunities at this public school. All three children thrived in this encouraging environment that fostered a love of academics, art and music. The teachers are wonderful and very well qualified.

My son went to KES, from CD to fifth grade, he loves school and loves learning and I believe the reason he loves it, is because of KES.

I really think that this is a great school. I went to this school for k-3 back then and I really like all of the teachers. Some of the teachers are tell there from when I went. This school district is great to. Dorchester county district 2 has really hi test scores too. I do think if anyone is moving to summerville south Carolina that they should try out this school. thank you shana dorkewitz

Our daughter is in her 2nd year at Knightsville and we have been very happy. We're thrilled at how she's learning and having fun at the same time. I only can say that I do wish they had more extracurricular activities for the younger grades.

My daughter attended school here for kindergarten, first, and second grade. We found the teachers she had to be absolutely wonderful. They gave her an excellent educational experience in this otherwise lackluster school district. This school is growing at a gigantic rate, and is located in an area that provides it with a challenging mix of students. It pulls through as one of the best in the area despite all of its challenges. The teachers are dedicated, professional, and caring- my daugther had a great start!

My son attended Knightsville Elem. from K-5 - 5th grade. I started having problems in K-5 when I realized that there were about 5 or 6 children in the class that were allowed to run around the room freely while the rest of the class tried to learn. There was no disipline! Most of the other problems that I had with this school was on the buses throughout the remaining five years. There were fights very often on the bus and the bus driver wouldn't stop the bus to stop the fight. The children that were supposed to be disiplined (on at least three occations that I am aware of)did not even get a call to their parents. I found this out by contacting parents myself. Students cannot live up to their potential in this type of environment.
