    Bonlee School is amazing! I am an 8th grader here at Bonlee and have been here since Kindergarten. Our teachers are the best they're all very kind and help us with all our problems. I can't wait to go to DC this year. The school has tons of fun trips but still make them educational. The 7th graders go to Camp Rockfish/Donlee. Bonlee is a great school with great staff and principle. If you're looking for a school in Chatham County I would suggest Bonlee!

    Our school has awesome principal who cares about student and employees safety and building character traits among students. Teachers and parents are active in PTA. Community based support with local businesses supporting fundraising.

    My son went to this school for a short time- the teachers were rude and I don't think they really care about their job.
