Ramey Unit School History

Opened: 1993

The Ramey schools were consolidated in 1993 into one school. The Ramey Unit School occupies twenty-seven acres located in the northwest corner of Puerto Rico near the town of Aguadilla. The campus includes three playgrounds and several athletic fields. The school consists of 19 buildings with a total of fifty-one classrooms. The school has an enclosed gymnasium, a large information center, a video/audio production lab, two READ 180 labs, two math labs, a STEM lab, and three computer labs. There is also a theater and a science building with classrooms equipped for Chemistry, Biology, Marine Biology and Physics.

For the 2020-21 school year, there were approximately 400 students. The students were dependents of active-duty members and civilian federal employees serving at USCS Air Station Borinquen, formerly known as Ramey Air Force Base. The school has students in grades pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade. The school has a full-time nurse, two full-time guidance counselors and a visiting educational psychologist. The school received national recognition for its growth in Advanced Placement classes.

The school is named in honor of Brigadier General Howard K. Ramey, a pilot whose aircraft vanished during a reconnaissance mission over the Bismarck Sea on March 26, 1943. The general and his crew were declared missed and later declared dead.

The school colors are green and white and the mascot is the Bombers.

In 2021 the Ramey community was informed that they would be getting a new school built.
