 Viola Burroughs  Sarah Molette

Our school opened in 1965 as two schools -- Viola Burroughs Elementary and Sarah Molette Junior High. The two schools were housed in one large building with a common cafeteria. In 1970 the two schools merged to become the BurroughsMolette SeventhGrade Center, which served all the seventh graders in GlynnCounty.

In 1975 the school became Burroughs-Molette Elementary for first through fifth grade. In 1980, kindergarten was added. In addition, the school now serves all special needs categories except the deaf.
