The teachers at Cave Spring High are passionate about their students and jobs. Unfortunately, we are not in the best learning environment because of the rebuilding of our building. We are temporarily in outdoor trailers that can be compact and difficult to move around. The situation certainly puts a damper on our school spirit but the Knights will fight!

Good school, great teachers, and education. A new school is currently being built and will be ready in about a few months. The school is going to have new equipment that will improve the education of the students. All the teachers are nice and very helpful, school sports are also very good. Man of the students have school spirit and take part in after school activities. Cave Spring High School really prepares you for the real world due to their wide range of classes that one can take for instance, personal finance. There are also numerous amounts of AP classes that one can take at the school or online.
At Cave Spring High School all of the faculty and staff do everything in their power to help us students advance in our pursuit of knowledge. Cave Spring has entrusted the students with our own personal school laptops. Cave Spring allows us, the students, the ability to choose from in classroom courses and online courses for a well-rounded educational experience. For example in my junior year I took personal finance online and got one of the highest scores on the WISE Exam. Cave Spring's courses include general studies as well as AP and Duel Enrollment courses.
