Horry County Schools score “Good” rating on state report card

Schools in Horry and Georgetown counties showed some improvement from 2013 on their S.C. Education Oversight Committee report card ratings, but their absolute ratings for 2014 stayed the same.

Horry County Schools received a “good” rating on the 2014 EOC report card, and Georgetown County Schools scored an “excellent” – the highest rating given by the EOC.

“We obviously would have loved to been rated ‘excellent,’ but given the high stakes involved and the diversity of our student population, we certainly can be proud of a ‘good’ rating,” said Teal Harding, Horry County Schools spokeswoman.

In Horry County 83 percent of schools scored either “excellent” or “good” in 2014, which beats the 2013 number of just 78 percent.
