This is a great school. One of our boys completed K-5 through 5th grade there. Our younger son has gone K-5 through 3rd and is now in 4th grade there. The teachers and principal are great, the PTA is strong and involved. This is a little gem of a school.

I had the utmost privilege to teach 5th grade at this school until I am now staying home with our little girl. The teachers are top notch and the PTA is incredibly supportive! We are blessed to have the most wonderful parents, administration, and teachers.

Paris Elementary is a unique school tucked away from the busyness of life near the Paris Mountain area. We have a qaint friendly atmosphere without unhealthy competition. The open door policy makes for a great volunteer atmosphere. It's a place where friends, students, parents and staff work together to form a family!

This school is awesome! We are all like one big family! Both of my kids went to Paris, and it couldn't have been better. The teachers love children and it shows. The kids feel safe and cared for. The PTA is extremely involved and supportive.There are lots of wonderful parents and grandparents that often volunteer on a weekly basis.

This is an absolutely wonderful school. Dedicated, caring, excellent teachers and a PTA that is outstanding. It is also very diverse - a 'real world' school where everyone is represented.

Teachers are wonderful and treat your children like they are their own. When students drop in grades, teachers contact parents and find a solution before it gets any worse.

Wonderful school. My child learned very, very well here. The math program left my child excited about mathematics~wanting to learn more. Paris is also just like one of those old-fashioned schools that includes the teachers, students, parents (and grandparents) in the education of the children. I am happy my child attended Paris Elementary. All the positive things I heard about this top-notch school were & are true. My child is now in middle school & she still talks about how much she loved this Paris.

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.
