Welcome to East Link Academy

East Link Academy Receives an "Excellent" Rating on its FIRST State Report Card

Each year, School and District Report Cards are posted on the South Carolina Department of Education’s (SCDE's) website ( These Report Cards provide information about each school and district, including test performance, teacher qualifications, student safety, awards, parent involvement and much more. 

On October 2, report cards for the 2018-2019 school year were released. As a first year school, East Link Academy earned a rating of "Excellent" not usually earned by first year schools. 

"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 academics and language proficiency, ' Dana Hutto, Head of School.
