    "Living my high school years while at PSA was an incredible, life-changing experience for me. I met countless great friends and teachers whom I never would have met otherwise. Going to PSA is so much more than "getting a good education". There is a huge variety of student- and faculty-run clubs and organizations for you to get involved in, a rapidly growing and successful athletic department, and a rigorous academic program that not only challenges students but prepares them for college and beyond. Numerous field trips are offered throughout the year for both the middle and high school, and all are amazing experiences for students. The clubs at PSA are a prime opportunity for students to develop (or enhance) their communication and leadership capabilities, both skills that are essential for success beyond school. PSA has a great student culture, where each person feels accepted and loved by everyone, unlike many schools today."

    "The administration doesn't listen to parents ideas. They are very combative, and defensive over the poorly run program. Combine the poor administration with over protective parents is one huge problem. No one in this school cared about anyone but themselves. I made a lot of friends at this school, however it was not until I reached high school and left that I realized that it couldn't be classified as a school at all. The school is filthy and unsafe, as the pta trues constantly to no avail to get anything done. I would never send my kids there."

    "No control, not knowledgable, but good at what they do."

    "As a graduate of PSA, I know firsthand that the teachers at Palmetto Scholars Academy are some of the best. They are passionate toward the content they are teaching, and do everything in their power to make sure every student lives up to the mission of the school. PSA is a school known for its gifted and talented curriculum, and while the courses and teachers may be challenging, it is for the greater good of the student to not only learn the material, but to retain the material and apply it to real-life situations. Almost every teacher at PSA oversees some sort of club or organization, of which there is a significant amount of. The teachers at PSA go above and beyond not just during school hours to provide the best education possible. Many teachers offer after school tutoring and weekend study sessions to make sure all students are able to succeed. The teachers are very socially engaging, and develop great relationships with students to make them not only want to come to PSA every morning, but want to learn each day. I highly encourage you or your child to attend this state of the art school, newly located (as of January 2016) in Hunley Park across from the Charleston Air Force Base in North Charleston, SC."

    "Some teachers were EXTREMELY helpful. They cared about my work and how well I understood. My favorite teacher of all time worked there. He left soon after me as the school was far too disorganized to function. Other teachers were biased. Some even racist. I know how strange and impossible that may seem in today's age, but it is true. Wether or not they still teach there, I do not know. Othet teachers did not care how uncomfortable students were, which bothered me even more. Overall, there were few diamonds in the many teachers the we're wrecking for the first time, and many MANY teachers that were fired within a year of being hired."
