I must be living on another planet because it is NOT CHILD CENTERED, but rather drill. If this is an excellent school, I would hate to see a poor one! They drill the kids constantly and I wonder what the hurry is to get them to learn academics. Academics should be introduced in a fun way. DO NOT GO HERE!

I am so impressed with The O'Quinn Schools of Porter-Gaud. I enrolled my great niece in their 3 year old classes for the school year, and sent her to two weeks at camp before school began. There is a sense of harmony in this happy environment as you encounter it at anytime. A member of the Parent's Guild contacted me to welcome us warmly before school commenced and to answer any questions. O'Quinn's is highly organized in every way: academically, stimulating for the children at school with follow through involvement with parents at home; the school security is top notch and state of the art with a partnership with the Mt. Pleasant Police. The Director of the school can see what is happening in the classrooms with cameras, and their is a finely tuned audio system which can reach teachers wherever they are inside or outside. There is an evacuation partnership with the BI-LO across the street which has been tested and is successful. My child is very bright and I feel she is very happy with her new school. The standard of education and teacher qualifications are top-notch. There is a good selection of supplemental courses offered as an extension of the academic curriculum.
