We are considering moving into the school district for Tigerville for our son who will be attending 1st grade, but I must say that it makes me a bit suspicious of the reviews when almost all of them were written on the same day - May 2nd, 2010. It smacks of a teacher or group of staff members all getting together to post a "batch" of reviews - almost all of them are one or two lines, lacking in any real detail or specifics, and are all anonymous "Submitted by a parent." Very suspicious and of NO use as a true review for potential parents doing their research and trying to honestly compare schools. Sad, because parents really need a source of reliable info. Anyone else out there know other forums/websites that are honest and unbiased?

My child has always had issues attending school since K5. We switched to Tigerville in 3rd grade and all issues are gone. The Love and Logic approach that each member applies has changed our child. Tigerville has a special way of making each child feel important. Thanks Tigerville for caring!

I have been fortunate that when visiting my grandsons in Travelers Rest I get to pick them up from Tigerville El. During my visits I am continually amazed at the up beat disposition of the staff and teachers and how it is mirrored in the students. What a positive learning environment. As incredibly impressed I am with Tigerville El. I am dumbfounded by the fact that funding for education and particularly science, a national priority(?) is always in jeopardy. Thank God for the likes of Care2. I thank them for the opportunity to save education programs. Go Tigerville!!!!!!!!.

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.
