MY COMPLAINT: I Walked in the front office a few days ago and the older lady (think her name is Reggie) was talking very badly, to the front office, about a child. I don't know her but that's the ONLY TIME I EVER HAVE SEEN HER SMILE.... She's NOTHING but a RUDE, miserable, old women

Cedar grove is a good school.Their are only a couple of teachers that are down to earth and have respect for concerning parents, but there are some that think being rude or disrespectful or think they dont have any rules for themselfs.The principal Mrs Ellison is the most loveing, careing and understanding women. She makes cedar grove what it is today even though somethings need to change in the school. The assistant principal takes her job a little to serious.I think that some of the kids would end up loveing her if she just relaxed. Teresa and tammy doesnt get apprecited like they should for all the hard work and mentally abuse the recieve on a daily basises.I think the tickets like[misbehaving,car,etc] need more reviewing and changed a little to make it better to pick your child up faster exspecially when you need to go to another school.

I am very proud of our school. Both of my boys have gone to Cedar Grove. My children go to Special Ed Class. All teacher are very special and care very much for the children in each class. I have family that were impress with the school too. Believe me you will love the school for your children. Very special to us. We have to move to the coast now. I am finding it very hard to find the right school for our children now. I will miss our school.

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.
