The Island’s 18 primary schools are divided in to three zones, or districts. With very rare exceptions, students must attend a school within their zone of residence. The public primary level offers foundation educational experiences to children who are generally between the ages of 5 and 11. Approximately half of these children may have attended one of the 10 free Government preschools prior to entering primary school.
An average of 500 five year olds are registered for the first year of public primary school each year. The primary school curriculum encompasses English language arts (encompassing instruction in reading, writing and comprehension) and mathematics, as well as science, social studies, physical education, music and art.
