While there, they met with teachers and administrators, and observed several classes. They also visited the USCG Air Station Borinquen to establish housing options for the students while they are living there. Students will be staying in military housing, where they have access to the base amenities, including fitness center, swimming pool, library, and shopping.

Ramey's approximately 500 students are dependents of active duty military members and civilian federal employees serving at USCG Air Station Borinquen and other federal agencies located on what was once Ramey Air Force Base. Ramey Unit School offers a world-class education to students enrolled in classes from pre-kindergarten through 12th grade.
