This school is sub-par. They are under-resourced, there are no activities for the children, there was not even an after school program last year. When you call the school, the staff seem completely clueless. They can't seem to answer the simplest questions. You are always on hold for yet another person that doesn't know the answer to your question. The test scores are abysmal.

The teachers are very caring and are a great asset to District 17.


Posted May 15, 2005

My daughter has attended Lemira Elementary since Kindergarden. The Principal's and Vice-Principal's involvement have amazed me. They encourage the children and they are there for the parents. My daughter is an A student who loves going to school each day. And I am comfortable and excited about sending her each day and working with the staff myself.

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.
