SOME of the teachers are great. Last year my children loved thier teachers and my oldest still has contact with last years teacher. This year they are both having a really hard time with thier teachers. I have had to go to the principal for one of the teachers yelling "shutup" to my child. I am not very impressed after this year. It is a good school overall.

This school is great up to the 5th grade. The middle school was recently added and some of the new middle school teachers should not be in teaching children. There definately needs to be some changes.

This is a great school! The teachers faculty and staff are second to none. More importantly the parents and students are amazing. And community support is huge.

the school board and the teachers take a true interest in your children while they are there. as the parent of an ADHD child i know that he can be extremely active and have a short temper and attention span. the teachers at sandy run have done there best to focus my sons attention on schoolwork and activities rather than putting him in detention. they call parent teacher conferences if there is a problem they can not handle. my son was on the honor roll all last year and even with the issues at hand he is this year maintaining A and B grades. i dont think i could ask for a better school or people to lead our children. thank you sandy run.

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.

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.

The different student groups are identified by the South Carolina Department of Education. If there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 South Carolina used the End-of-Course Examination Program (EOCEP) to test middle and high school students in Algebra I, Mathematics for the Technologies II, Biology I, English I, US History, and US History and Government. The EOCEP provides tests in high school core courses and for courses taken in middle school for high school credit. The EOCEP is a standards-based test program, 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 a C or above.
