OES is a terrific school. The teachers go above and beyond to give the students the best education possible. I have found the principal and vice principal to be friendly, kind, and fair. It is a blessing to have my children at OES. Go OWLS!!!!!

Okatie Elementary is simply fantastic. They offer so much for the students. This school has art, drama, band, chorus, and science lab. There are also so many clubs and activities that children can get involved with and enjoy while they are learning. The teachers and staff are all so professional and the atmosphere at this school is so warm and welcoming.

this school is not what it seems to be. Lots of favoritism and judgement is passed to parents of a students that have english as a second language. Principal is very hard to talk to and is always judgmental. If a child is behind parent is asked to remove the child to another school so the scores would not fall under... hmmmm its a luck of the draw getting teacher. Some of the teachers are frantic neurotic...

This is one of the best schools I have ever seen. They have a great environment for our children to learn in. The principal and the assistant principal are two of the most caring individuals in the industry. The teaching staff and assistants are wonderful.

My daughter just finished kindergarten and will be attending first grade next week. This school is the best in Beaufort County. Teachers team teach, and work in small groups so the kids can work at their highest levels and not be held back. The science program is awesome! My daughter loved working the garden. And we have the best art, music, and drama programs!!! Test scores are high because the teachers care and they take the time to work with all the kids individually. This is a science and technology based curriculum. We chose our house to make sure we would be at this school! Go OKATIE Owls!

My children transferred to Okatie from Bluffton Elementary this year. Both of my children are high performers and Okatie by far services them better. Bluffton used my child as a teachers assistant and though extra specialized assignments were offered by her previous teacher, they never followed through concentrating instead on the non-performers. So much for equal opportunity education! Okatie gears her homework to her skill level and sends her to the GT teacher for more challenging work despite the fact that she is not yet in the 3rd grade (when district officially offers GT programs to students). Pinckney and Lawton are also by far more experienced then the team at BLE and run a tight ship. Also the teacher teams are focused and communicate in a manner that is noticeable. By far a superior public school.

I have a son who attends Okatie and he loves his school. I think that the teachers there are wonderful and caring. He have learn so much in the third grade that I'm sure he will do wonderful in the 4th. His teacher was Ms. Sweet. He attended the after-school program which helped him with math and reading skills. Okatie Elementary is the best.
