I moved my kids from Pritchardville Elementary to Okatie through the choice program. I am so glad I did! They are thriving at Okatie, the staff are truly caring and really get to know your kids. The parent involvement is so much more at Okatie than at Pritchardville and it makes a huge difference. We love the principle Jamie Pickney. She runs a tight ship, but you can certainly tell she is caring and the students respect her. She leads through a great example. They have a ton of extra's for the kids; music, art, theatre, Young Astronauts, and clubs after school as well. From the principle to the librarian, all staff is approachable. You can tell when people like their jobs and their environment......it shows.
