The schools that serve Satsuma include Robert E. Lee Primary School (Kindergarten through 2), Robert E. Lee Intermediate School (3 through 5), a middle school (6-8), Satsuma High School (9-12). Lee Primary, Lee Intermediate, and Satsuma High are in the city of Satsuma, while Adams Middle is in the nearby city of Saraland.
In June 2006, Saraland voted for its own city school system Saraland officials expect to have the new school system in operation by 2009. If the Saraland school district does not allow for Satsuma residents to attend Adams Middle School, MCPSS may have to construct a new middle school or rezone students to an existing middle school.
