Remarkable Living, Everyday
Henry and Clara Ford sought to improve the quality of life and open doors for people living in Richmond Hill, formerly Ways Station. Their dreams and intentions did not die with them. Their legacy is still behind Richmond Hill's growth and fortunate existence. Richmond Hill was built on education, entrepreneurship, low taxes and beautiful landscape - the sense of community anyone can enjoy.
The goal of the Bryan County Board of Education is to provide a first-class education to meet the individual needs of a diverse student population by making it a priority to create a safe and comfortable learning environment. Our community values the importance of education highly, believing in a well-rounded curriculum to enhance the education each child receives.

In addition to having one of the most competitive tax rates of all the coastal counties, homeowners ages 65 and up receive a $50,000 Homestead Exemption from the City, County and Board of Education property tax.
