Pelican’s school buildings, like many of the other buildings on the inlet side of the boardwalk, are built on pilings to keep them up out of the water. The schools were built during a time when Pelican had more residents. Today the total school population now ranges between 10 and 15 students.

These schools provide not only a learning environment, but important space for recreating. The elementary school offers a playground with swings and green space. The high school has an outdoor covered basketball court and an indoor gym that is often open during the evenings.

Note: Two community-carved totems – a bear and a raven - can be seen outside the Middle-High School as well.
