This school rocks everything about it is wonderful. My Grandson loves this school along with everyone else in his family.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted July 31, 2009

We have had two children at this school, and it is very well run and appointed. They have comptuer labs, a lovely library, and smal class sizes. The counselors and principals know the students by name, and work very well with the teachers. Lunches have healthy and varied options. There are security and safety drills for the kids and the teaching staff. They have a second grade musical, which is adorable, and do many festivals, little class plays and such. The students and teachers all seem to be well organized and we've been extremely happy with this school. The principal has worked with us, and our kids, who have difficult special needs, but have been well loved and we've always been cared for kindly and with understanding. We had one very strict teacher, but she retired.

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.
