Cave City is smaller than a couple schools in independence county. But they are much stronger academically in that they serve ALL the students well, with a variety of programs for the individual learner. I wouldn't have my kids attend anywhere else!

I attended school in the Cave City School District longer than any other school as I moved around a lot before we settled there. It was not the best out of the schools I attended but far from the worst. Everyone knows each other and is friendly. The teachers are involved with the students when they need the extra attention and very helpful. They are knowledgeable in their subjects and glad to share. Their is a lot of school spirit as sports are a big thing for the small town the school resides in. It makes for a good experience for the students with all the different activities to take part in. When it comes to sports a lot of the activities correlate with each other which is also good. The only thing I think really needs improvement would be more preparation in the skills that you need for adult life. This is true for the majority of schools however so it can not be held against them entirely. All in all it is a great school for a child to develop into a responsible young adult.
Cave City School was a good place to learn. It was a safe environment with well trained educators. The food was subpar, and the meals were repetitive, meaning the same things were served many times. They offered the classes I needed to find what I would like to do for my career. I do however wish they would fix the way they do some of there concurrent classes.
