2022 School Report Cards
Posted on 10/17/2022

Georgetown, SC - The South Carolina Department of Education (SCDE) and the SC Education Oversight Committee (EOC) released the 2022 school, district and state report cards this morning, providing a rating of Excellent, Good, Average, Below Average, or Unsatisfactory for every school in the state. These are the first ratings since 2019 and reflect data and student performance information from the 2021-22 school year.

In Georgetown County School District (GCSD), 10 of 17 schools earned overall ratings of Excellent, Good, or Average, which are defined as meeting or exceeding the criteria to ensure all students meet the Profile of the South Carolina Graduate. The overall ratings for three schools improved from 2019 - Kensington Elementary, Plantersville Elementary, and Pleasant Hill Elementary.  

“I commend the students and educators in Georgetown County School District for their hard work and efforts,” said Superintendent Keith Price. “We are maintaining our overall ratings despite the challenges presented by the pandemic. Improvement and growth are evident; however, we cannot stop our momentum.”

At all levels, the report cards rate Academic Achievement, Preparing for Success, and English Learners’ Progress. Elementary and Middle School report cards also contain a rating for Student Progress – a measure of student growth. As a district, 9 of 13 GCSD elementary and middle schools earned Student Progress ratings of Excellent, Good, or Average. Kensington Elementary and Plantersville Elementary, both rated Excellent for Student Progress, and Pleasant Hill Elementary, rated Good for Student Progress, each improved two rating levels from 2019. Additionally, High School report cards contain ratings for Graduation Rate and College & Career Readiness. As a district, the 2021 GCSD graduation rate was 86.7%, a slight improvement from 2019, and 63.9% of graduates were College or Career Ready. All four high schools had an Excellent or Good rating for Graduation Rate.

“Our student progress ratings indicate that we are making individual gains through intentional targeting of skills gaps. We are going to celebrate our improvements in Student Progress realizing that gains in achievement will come,” said Price. “Plans are already in place to address areas of improvement and the gaps between the highest and lowest performing students. We are committed to improving the performance of all of our schools.”

The report cards are available on the South Carolina Department of Education website. All schools in GCSD, with the exception of Waccamaw Elementary, will also be posting a link to individual report cards on their school’s website. WES does not receive a rating.
