Mrs. Dee Washington is one terrific principal. She really 'protects' all of our children while in her care. The teachers are great! Really a parent approved school! So honored to be a part of Brushy Creek Elementary.

My son went to Brushy Creek for 4th and 5th grades and now my daughter has been here for K5 and 1st grades. We have been very happy with the school and teachers. My only wish would be more programs for advanced students besides 'challenge.' The principal, Mrs. Washington, is superb - she knows EVERY child, and most parents, by name. Overall a fabulous school!

My son was in Mrs. Krawczyk and Mrs. McCormack's class and he a such a wonderful time in their class they were outstanding teachers and I would tell anyone who was looking to send their child to Brushy Creek that they made the right choice for their child. Thanks again for the great year and look forward to next year in First Grade.

My children attended this school for 3 1/2 years. I was extremely pleased with everything. The teachers that we had there were great. Especially Mrs.Jennifer Hart, my daughter's 1st grade teacher. She's the kind of teacher you dream about your children having. She is wonderful. The office staff is also wonderful. I love this school and we had a fantastic experience there. The only thing I regret is that I could'nt take the school with me when my family and I moved to florida! I wish I could have! Any child who attends this school is a lucky child! They will receive a top notch education.

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.
