Open Quote wow, i could not be further from the previous review. education has gone downhill every year at ft mill elem because of mrs helms. new leadership is a must if this school is ever going to provide quality education again. very very disappointed Close Quote

Open Quote My child has been going to Fort Mill Elementary since Kindergarten and is now in the fourth grade. I am simply amazed by the school's leadership (Mrs. Helms) as well as the teachers. They are very nurturing while not being overly so. They REALLY care about the welfare of the children. I have NEVER had any communication issues and if I ever did have a concern, it was addressed right away. My daughter is on a 6th grade reading level and tested as being in the top 10% as far as scores for her age/grade group. And this is only in the first two weeks of school this year (2010). She has always tested lower in the beginning (as I'm sure most children do) - by the end of the school year it is amazing to see how much better she does (when she does well already!). We actually moved to Fort Mill, SC from California and chose Fort Mill specifically for their schools. We have not been disappointed. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
