Fort Stewart Community
The DOD Education Activity operates three elementary schools on Fort Stewart. Each school has exceptional children programs. To be eligible to attend, parents must reside in family housing on the military installation. The four on-post kindergarten through sixth grade schools are Brittin Elementary, Diamond Elementary, Kessler Elementary and Murray Elementary.
All schools are accredited by the Southern Association of Schools and Colleges and offer a wide range of instructional and support services. There are no middle or high schools on the installation. Children in grades 7-12 attend school in the local community. Students living on Fort Stewart attend Liberty County School System’s middle and high schools in Hinesville and Liberty County. Students living off post attend a school in their county of residence. Bus transportation is provided depending on the distance the student lives from the school. Breakfast and lunch is offered on a free, reduced or full-priced fee schedule. Before- and after-school care for students residing on the installation is provided by School Age Services, not at the individual school. A variety of sports and extracurricular activities are provided through Child, Youth & School Services. About 2,000 children are enrolled in the Fort Stewart Schools. The average student-teacher ratio is 13-to-1. Students living on Hunter Army Airfield attend school within Savannah Chatham County Public School System as there are no on-post schools on Hunter. Hunter students living off post also attend schools in the county of their residence.
