This school is just... amazing! I have never seen a child get bullied. The teachers are nice and really care about your dreams and passions. The library....its just... wow! All of the specials ( computer, art, music, p.e) have high quality ratings. I have a passion to write, and share my opinion. This school really let me do so, and excel in it.The Gifted And Talented program was really challenging, for kids who needed it. The GATE program even excepted me when I moved in the mid-school year. The school is very sanitary, and clean. The teachers always found a way to make it fun, while you would learn and get an education. It is not you average run-of-the-mill school. This school is amazing. I highly recommend sending your child here for friendly learning, and a fun educational experience ~ BESS BRIDWELL

They both had/have Ms Holden and she is wonderful. My son now has Ms Rich This is another great teacher. my son is border line needing special resources. But did not Qualify. This school takes a step futrher They step in and offer their time and give the help that they think will help the child.But they always make sure it is ok with the parent..

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.
