What are the best and the worst? I'm talking about ones that are highly rated vs ones that you should stay away from. Every city has them and I'd like to hear from the locals.

If you stay in Riverside/Eastside/JLMann areas you should be fine from elementary on up.

Our son had a miserable experience with Greenville Middle Academy, matter a fact we moved for that reason he was in 6th grade. We have heard from many people that it is a feeder school meaning you get kids from all different cities. I would steer clear of Beck Academy as well. Our son has Autism,and these schools do not know how to handle kids with special needs. Never heard anything negative about Riverside or Mauldin schools. JL Mann as well as Wade Hampton High received Best High School nods.

From the research I've been doing, I've heard good reviews for Wade Hampton.
