Stiles Point Elementary is a top-rated school on James Island (and in Charleston County as a whole). James Island has a single middle school (Camp Road Middle) and a single high school (James Island Charter), which means that all island residents are zoned to attend these schools. If you’re seeking private schools, Porter-Gaud and Ashley Hall are among the best in South Carolina and are just a short drive away. This is ideal for parents because traffic will be less of an issue anymore, as parents will find it easier to bring their children from home to school.
