This school has been great in my experience since the current principal has joined the team. The teachers are so caring. No one slips through the cracks!
The school has approximately 250 +/-, Pre K thru highschool is the student base.
I am glad to send my children there because it is so small. There are some areas that I would like to see improvement, like sports. The school generally completes against small private schools, but the new P.E. teacher is working to fix that. The community also plays a huge role in donations for the students in the school. For example, when the schools needs money for uniforms or computers someone from the community puts forth the money.

I spent K -12 at Cedar Key school and I'm happy that I stayed there. The teachers are dedicated to helping the students succeed and everyone was very close to one another. It was a very small school, my graduating class consisted of just eight people. The school itself is very safe school when compared to others.The teachers at CKS are probably the most devoted that you'll ever find.They truly care about the students in their care, but when a school is understaffed it can be difficult to reach every student and make sure they are progressing. I feel like my development was definitely improved upon by the environment that I grew up in.
The intimacy of the school helps with Academics sense everyone knows each other and has each other backs, the fact that it is such a close-knit and small school everyone pulls through for each other in a time of crisis, even the faculty will be on your side and are very understanding.
