Year school opened: 1996
The land used to be a working plantation. The owners of the plantation are buried in a small cemetery right behind the school. Dudley Sneed was the owner. He was also on the first Board of Education for the first school in Lee County.
Kinchafoonee Primary School opened in December of 1996 and originally schooled Pre-K through 3rd grades. Now it houses Kindergarten through 2nd grade. In the 2006-2007 school year, KPS built a new wing for the 2nd graders. They moved in for the 2007-2008 school year.
