    My child started at Burgess Elementary this year and we LOVE it! The administrators teachers and staff members are all excellent. From the moment I drop my child off to the always smiling and friendly faces of the teachers at the car drop off each moring until I pick her up to the same smiling faces each afternoon I know that my child is safe loved nurtured and in the BEST school in the state of South Carolina.
