This school has several students who fail multiple grades. They dont have the resources to keep kids on par. Its all about image. But the fact is the school is lacking in all areas Class selection, music, clubs, programs, extracurriculars, athletics. My students have received food poisoning multiple times. Several parents are taking their students out of the school, the teachers are even leaving.
The care for the difficult students, or just in general doesn't exist. Their teachers seem overworked and frazzled, the organization of the activities or trying to get assistance with a student is terrible.
They've baker acted students.
And unless you are part of the staff cliques parents have no idea whats going on. It takes weeks for the coordinate together for anything.
I think because the community is infested with addicts they hope the parents don't notice, but we do.
This school will show what you wants see, but give it a couple months in you'll see your true colors.

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.
Although it is the smallest public school in Florida, Cedar Key School has a lot to offer academically and athletically. All of the lessons are up close and personal and very detailed. If you struggle in large classrooms, then Cedar Key School is the place for you.
