Old Savannah Schoolhouse

Education on the Cayman Islands was a task typically undertaken by mothers and sometimes the local churches. It wasn't until the 1940s when the Savannah Schoolhouse first opened its doors that education became a more formal affair. Today the school system has expanded but the old school house remains for visitors who care to take a glimpse into what education was like over half a century ago.


The Old Savannah Schoolhouse is located very near the new school that the echo of children laughing and playing in the school yard can make this spot slightly haunting. Still, rows of desks, a blackboard, and bottles of ink remain in the room as a reminder of the past.
