At first glance, the classrooms in Pierce Terrace Elementary look like any other school. However, behind the walls is Fort Jackson, the nation’s largest Army training facility.
First-grader Kyle Radonski’s family lives on the base so he attends the school. He says going to class on post is fun because he has more freedom.
“Today I actually walked here all by myself,” boasted Radonski at school Thursday.
While students learn the same material taught at public schools, teachers do focus on special needs of military children.
