Education

Mobile County Public School System operates public schools. Students are zoned to North Mobile County K-8 School, previously North Mobile County Middle School.[6]

On September 7, 2010 North Mobile County Middle School opened, replacing the role of Adams Middle School in Saraland, because residents outside of Saraland are no longer zoned to Adams Middle.[7]

Prior to the split of the City of Satsuma from the Mobile County system, Axis was zoned to Satsuma High School. In 2011 Renee Busbee of the Mobile Press-Register said that residents of Axis may be rezoned to Blount, Citronelle, and/or Vigor high schools.[8]
