The Ministry of Education’s 38 schools feature state-of-the-art technology, and well-maintained facilities and grounds. Local schools and administrative facilities house about 6,000 students and 1200 employees.
The Ministry of Education’s school system is structured as a five-phase educational experience, with lower grade level schools feeding into higher grade level schools based on geographical zones.
All students, with the exception of those with multiple physical challenges or severe behavioural problems, are now educated in regular classroom settings. Support for these students, in the form of learning support teachers and para-educators, is put in to place in order to increase the opportunities for students success.
- Students with multiple challenges (primarily a combination of physical and cognitive challenges) are accommodated in one special school, Dame Marjorie Bean Hope Academy, which has a maximum enrollment of 25 students.
- Students with severe behavioural problems are accommodated in one special school – the Educational Centre which has a maximum enrollment of approximately 30 students.
