    Bolivia is the best! We are a large family in Brunswick County and 6 of our 8 children have graduated from Bolivia with the younger two still in the school. The teachers are truly caring and go above and beyond for the students! If you are considering Bolivia for your child has no reservations you will not be disappointed! One of our two younger children is a special needs child and I cannot say enough about how they as a team at Bolivia are dedicated to educating our child in the best manner for her! Thank you to all the staff and Bolivia!!

    Bolivia Elementary is the best elementary school in the county. All of the staff and especially the teachers care for our children. They are willing to go that extra mile to make sure that a child understands and learns. As a working parent I am not as involved as I would like to be but we do have quite a bit of parent involvement. Extracurricular activities could use a boost but again for working parents they have a good amount. Teachers are the best.

    I have two older children and two younger children. I was concerned about moving to North Carolina because the school system wasn t supposed to be as good. I was pleasantly surprised and amazed by this school. They give a lot of individual attention to their students. My daughter is in the Accelerated and Gifted (AIG) program. My husband works in Columbia South Carolina in the medical field. We checked into the public schools in Columbia and realized that our children would suffer greatly by moving them. Even the private schools didn t measure up to the standards of this school. So instead of moving our children my husband drives to work (three 12 hour shifts) and stays in a hotel. We consider this sacrifice worth it. Schools don t come any better than Bolivia Elementary. I know my older children have been in schools that were supposed to be the best.

    When my only child was to begin school I had made up my mind to send him to private school. Then I mets some parents who convinced me to look into Bolivia. That it was a great school I did and was happily surprised to see and learn about how positive the enviroment was and still is. The compassion and commitment to and for the children and their futures is amazing! They also have an awesome volunteer program that I really appreciate and sure that other parents who want to be involved can appreciate too.

    This school really shows you what a faculty of 'family' members can really do. I am proud to say I've had two daughters graduate from Bolivia Elementar and now have my last daughter beginning there. They are awesome!!
