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; and Citronelle High School in Citronelle.

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. North Mobile County middle had been built on a "16th section", a piece of land allotted to each school district under an Alabama law stating that for each sixteen portions of land in a county, the school district will take one portion of land. Some City of Satsuma residents disliked North Mobile County Middle's distance and remoteness from Satsuma, prompting them to call for a separate school district. The Mobile County government built the school outside of the Satsuma city limits so the city government would be unable to possess the school if it opted to secede.

Prior to the split 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.
