Savannah-Chatham Schools

Preschool, Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten and Elementary School should be a breeze, but in Savannah it seems like you need a PhD to figure out the best school fit for your child.

The decision about whether to opt for private vs public schools; the confusing Georgia lottery-funded free pre-K application process; and worries about how your elementary school choice will affect middle and high school creates a lot of unnecessary confusion and anxiety. We have created this page in order to attempt to help Savannah area parents navigate the school process without the hype and hysteria.

savannahschoolopenhousesStart with our SouthernMamas.com Open House Guide to find out out when you can check out your dream school in person.
