Douglas elementary has been a great school for both of my children, whenever a situation arose they handled it wonderfully. (Especially when my daughter was being bullied over her weight!)

Whenever a problem arose with my child the staff would just brush it under the rug and not follow through with the problem.

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.
