Kinser Elementary opened to students on April 22, 1987, after moving from Makiminato Elementary School during the spring break. The Makiminato Housing Area was closed, and the real estate turned over to the Japanese Government. Kinser Elementary (PSCD, Sure Start and K-6) is located on Camp Kinser, overlooking the East China Sea. Five additions to the original complex were completed, as well as a softball field, soccer field, basketball court, and gymnasium/auditorium.
