Chincoteague Elementary School

Chincoteague is a small island town located in Accomack County, Virginia, that is home to a population of over 2,800 residents. Incorporated as a governed town in 1908, Chincoteague is most popularly known for its gorgeous multi-colored ponies that roam free around its island. These one-of-a-kind horses are the biggest tourist attraction to the area, including its cozy atmosphere of being a small-town getaway with quaint little hotels, beaches, miniature golf courses, ice cream parlors, and piers with breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean.
