Sewell's Point Elementary is a great school, especial for military kids living near or on-base for Norfolk Operational Base (NOB). If PCSing to Norfolk, I highly recommend this school. The school is very accommodating to military families. I think the school is 100% military. There is a great bus system that picks up my son as well!
