all schools in the area are now on the uniform program. even the high schools. laurel bay schools parris island as well. they bus them over. There are 2 k thru 2nd schools on base (you go to the one depending on your address) & one 3rd thru 8th. The schools on base are amazing w/a few exceptions of a few staff/teachers. it?「どィび「s hit or miss w/the assignment of teachers. the pto is non existant. the after school programs/clubs are non existant as well. The air conditioning in the school is unacceptable yet they never fix it. the lunch served is barely consumed by the students?「どィャカ.it not edible. absolutely gross. they offer spanish to kindergarten & 1st grade only (funding). The high school out in town, battery creek, is a ceespool of criminals, underachievers & low expectations. more students ?「どィ?graduate?「どィャ w/ a certificate of ?「どィ?thanks for coming?「どィャ (meaning they didnt pass but you did attend) as opposed to a hs degree. be weary! do your research for schoo ls out in town.
