The S.C. Department of Education has released their annual school report cards for schools throughout the Palmetto State Thursday morning. Two of the three districts in Greenwood County received high marks while the third received a low grade.

Greenwood District 52 ranked fifth in the state, behind only Orangeburg’s Felton Laboratory School, Spartanburg District 2, Spartanburg District 4 and York District 2. District 52 earned an A with an index score of 91.3, a drop of .9 from the 92.7 they earned in 2012.

Greenwood District 51 got a lower score than they received in2012. Last year, District 51 earned an A with an index score of 90.8. In 2013, District 51 dropped their score by 2.6 points, earning a B with an index score of 88.2.

Greenwood District 50 showed a steep decline in their score from in 2012, earning a D with an index score of 64.8 and ranking among the lowest in the state. District 50 dropped nearly 27 points from their 2012 score when they earned an A with an index score of 91.7.

Ware Shoals Elementary School was the only school in Greenwood County to earn a perfect score. Overall, District 51 received 2 A’s and a C. District 52 schools scored three A’s and one B. Greenwood District 50 schools earned two A’s, four B’s, four C’s and three D’s. Lakeview Elementary posted an excellent index score of 98.3.

The High School Assessment Program test, or HSAP, results do not show quite the disparity across the three districts. Passing the HSAP is currently a requirement for graduation in South Carolina. Students begin taking the HSAP test in the spring of their sophomore year. Students then continue taking the test each fall and spring until they pass the test.

In District 51, 87.5 percent of 80 total test takers, or about 70 students, passed both the English language arts (ELA) and mathematics portion of the test. That mark was the highest of the three districts in Greenwood County. District 50 ranked second in the county 84.8 percent of 657 test takers, about 557 students, passing both portions of the test. Emerald High School and Greenwood High School had nearly identical passing rates with 84.7 percent and 84.8 percent, respectively. District 52 had 84.3 percent of 134 test takers, about 113 students, pass both portions of the test.
