I loved Royall for my daughter. She graduated West Florence in 2018. 1 Year early and it was because Royall gave her the foundation for everything she has done since. She was helping 11th & 12th graders write Term Papers in the 9th grade. She was an student at royal and thru Sneed Middle School and West Florence High School. Royall is the best school in this state. She still keeps in touch with some of her teachers from Royall. My daughter is an Artist, and She was at Royall 2006 to 2012 and the Art Teacher there was an inspiration to.

*Coming From A Former Student* Children been bullied (even with proof they say they didn't see it) not had his proper accommodations for mental illness, learning disability or physical illness met. There is more than one parent that has had DSS called on them by this school out of retaliation. Don't recommend the school principal has been rude unprofessional to more than one parent and she gets away with it because her husband is higher up in Florence's school district. It awfuL way a few of our families have been treated by her and the disgrace and treatment of this school needs to be known and addressed. Attacking families with mental I'll children and calling DSS it wrong. What happens to a safe learning place and our education system here? I also hate that They Boast about being a five star school. I wouldn't give them no stars if I could....
