Community Rating & Reviews

    This is by far one of the worst schools in SC. My daughter attended this school and was constantly asking for $2 every Friday just to wear what she wanted. I think that is absurd. They don't have any paper towels in the restrooms and to top it all off they have a concession lady selling candy and soda. She allowed my child to buy $5 worth of candy. Also during fields day they had music that used obscene language.
