Charleston's Private Schools


Ashley Hall

Bishop England


First Baptist Church of Mt. Pleasant


Ashley Hall-
Ashley Hall was founded in 1909 by another of Charlestonís pioneering woman Mary Vardrine McBee.  Ms. McBeeís vision to prepare young women for college carries on today.  Ashley Hallís college placement is 100 percent! You will find that the studentís acceptance to the college or university of their choice is the norm.  In 1948, the Ashley Hall Foundation was formed in order to purchase the preparatory school from Ms. McBee.  In 1949, Ms. McBee retired after 50 years as Headmistress of Ashley Hall.

Bishop England-
Bishop England High School was founded in 1915 by the Charleston Catholic community.  Mrs. Thomas F. Ryan, of New York City, donated the property located at 203 Calhoun Street to the church for the building of this parochial school.  In 1921, the existing property from the original purchase was torn down and another school was built in its place. You can only imagine life as a student back then where only Catholic nuns taught the dayís lesson.  You think The Citadel has disciplined learning.  Today you see kids running after school dismissal with their nice white shirts and forest green pleated skirts and slacks. Bishop England High School is the largest Catholic private school in the state of South Carolina.

Report ranks S.C. school performance
Of The Post and Courier Staff

South Carolina's public schools perform better than expected, considering the disadvantages students bring to the classroom, according to a new report by the Manhattan Institute for Policy Research.

After factoring in students' socioeconomic challenges, the conservative think tank concluded that South Carolina schools perform at the national average. The report ranks South Carolina 26th in academic performance and 24th in spending money efficiently, among the 50 states and Washington, D.C. The report was based on 2001 test scores on the National Assessment of Educational Progress, graduation rates and state budgets.

Author Jay Greene counted South Carolina among "places getting a bad rap undeservedly."

"South Carolina still has mediocre results," he said. "They're just not abysmal results."

The findings were part of a report released Tuesday that compares the disadvantages students faced 30 years ago to those today.

The study looked at 16 factors, including income, percentage of single parents, crime rates, English-speaking abilities, parents' education levels and access to health care and pre-kindergarten programs.

It weighed all factors equally. Conditions improved in 10 factors and worsened in six, according to the 44-page report.

Greene believes it debunks educators' excuses that schools perform poorly because students today are harder to teach.

"In general, kids are coming to school with fewer challenges," he said. "In some ways, it's gotten worse, but on the balance it's a little better."

In South Carolina, he said, "there's some truth to the common educator complaint."

South Carolina ranks 36th on the report's teachability index. Washington, D.C., ranks last, meaning its students must overcome the greatest challenges. The report puts school performance in South Carolina at 102 percent of expected academic levels and 106 percent efficiency.

"Still, other states with similar disadvantages nevertheless produce better results," Greene said.

North Carolina, for example, ranked 43rd in teachability, yet fifth in performance.

The report concludes that students in states with strong accountability systems perform at higher levels. South Carolina ranks ninth in accountability and testing.

"This means we should stop worrying about families and focus on school improvement," Greene said. "We shouldn't blame the kids and families on lack of progress. We have to focus on the schools to make a difference."
