I love this school, it''s very nice but too big. I got lost once and was in the third-grade hall. Overall, it''s good.

This school has high quality teachers and more after school activities than most elementary schools. My son loves his teachers! It is a really large school though... I think it is the largest elementary school in Charleston County. Enrollment keeps going up, up, up. Probably because the school is so good.
