East Link Academy: Highest Performing Elementary School in SC 

(Greenville, SC, February 10, 2020) In its first year as a charter school, East Link Academy (ELA) accomplished what no other first-year charter school has done – it ranked #1 in the state based on state assessment results. As a public charter school, ELA students are required to participate in the State Department of Education’s SCREADY and SCPASS assessments. SCREADY is administered to students in grades 3-8 for English reading, writing and mathematics. SCPASS is administered to 4th grade students only for science. In its first year of state assessments, its students’ scores placed them #1 in the state for both traditional and charter elementary and middle schools, with 96.7% scoring met or exceed in English or math and 100% scoring met or exceed in science. In addition to earning an “Excellent” rating on its report card, ELA also received the State’s Palmetto Silver award.

"We are so excited for this recognition. Our mission is to provide a bilingual (Mandarin-English) education to non-native speakers and produce global leaders. So in a school where students spend at least half of their day in a Mandarin-speaking environment, for them to also make gains in their content classes is truly amazing. We focus on the individual learner and their needs, and with strong support from their families, students strive to achieve both academic and language proficiency, ' Dana Hutto, Head of School.
