This school district has a facade as though it is a stellar school, and compared to the other schools in the area - this is slightly true, but entirely subjective. Now, you compare this district to schools in other states, and the difference is laughable; Cabot schools are a joke in regards to curriculum. We moved to Cabot because of the school district when we moved to Arkansas. It did not take us long, however, to learn that school does not care too much for students who are advanced academically, who are interested in the arts and/or science. This school is all about football first, the other sports second, and every other aspect about the school falls to the wayside. If you are not a member of the faculty or a dear friend, your child will get lost with no regrets. We have found it to be both disconcerting and deplorable that the small percentage of advanced/gifted children who keep this district in the "top public schools list" and are the reason why this district has many schools labeled as "diamond schools to watch" yet they allow the most gifted of students to navigate this ridiculously large campus without assistance. Intelligent and/or artistic students are looked at as 2nd class citizens at this school by faculty and students alike, and it is sickening. From the outside, Cabot has all of the things that involved parents want in a school district, but once you become part of the school district you learn the sad truth - if you don't play sports, you don't matter. We are parents who are highly educated and very involved in our only child's education and Cabot has severely disappointed us. What's worse is our best option is not to change school districts, but states altogether. It appears as though the faculty have learned how to play the game; they are overly polite, they portray this deep desire to help your child succeed, they seem genuinely invested in your child's educational growth and personal development... but beware, the raw truth will soon follow. If your main goal raising your children is for them to become a professional athlete, this is absolutely the school for you. But if your child is extremely gifted, this probably isn't the school for you. Gifted children require a comprehensive learning environment created to address their individual needs as a group and Cabot is seriously lacking in this area.

We moved to Cabot because of the military and the school district was better than Pulaski Special School District, which serves the Air Force Base. Our last duty station was in NJ where our child attended Pemberton Township H.S. Although Cabot H.S. may have the best school in the area, it still has a LONG way to go. My child was in all honors classes to include A-STEM. The education my child received in NJ could place him a grade ahead of where he should be at Cabot. In his Civics class, he reported to us that he read the text book for fun in fifth grade back in New Jersey. The kids here honestly didn't know who the first President was or any other "standard" US History knowledge that would normally be obtained in elementary school. I guess that's what you get when the school doesn't assign homework each day. I'm so disappointed with this school. It's a Common Core Curriculum school and these people are more concerned with football than academics. We're seriously considering sending my wife and three kids back to NJ for their education. Don't be fooled by the new campus.

This is my former school. Not only does the administration depend on scare tactics to keep the student body in line, but they also care more about their individual power over the students. Some teachers don't have enough money given to them to buy supplies without using their own money. Instead relying on donations from the student body. But, oddly enough the school finds money for the huge football program. Football players are treated above the average student. They are given all the perks and all the advantages. The rules are harsh and unnecessary. They would rather stifle the creativity of the students and keep them in a dark, unforgivable oppression than make a remote attempt to create an enjoyable learning environment. The staff is rude, unless you're a teacher. And the teachers are not very willing to give the extra time or effort to be a real role model. The best thing that ever happened to me was leaving this school. If you believe your student needs a toxic environment to "thrive" in school, then this is the place. If you think your student deserves a school that actually cares about his/her wellbeing, then I would find another school.

This school is awful. I had to pull my daughter out and move her to another school district due to the bullying and harassment she recieved, no matter how many times it was reported by her or I. Something else I noticed is that Cabot is highly political. If you don't have a reputation and are very rich, you are treated like dirt. There is little to no sense of equality. Seven months later, my daughter still recieves bullying from Cabot students and they are relentless. Her boyfriend still lives in Cabot and many students go to him to bash my daughter and try to break them up. I suggest you do not attend Cabot School District. I would NEVER reccomend this enviroment to anyone. It is a very mentally damaging place, for the bullying levels are outrageous. I fear for my daugher everyday because she is still damaged from the poor treatment she recieved.

I am very happy with education that my son has recieved in the Cabot School District since 3rd grade. The teachers have strived hard for him to get his education. He is on an IEP and we have had a rough time but he is eager to learn and go further thanks to the wonderful teachers and principals. I would recommend this school!

I have 2 children in the Cabot School District. We are active duty military and will be transferring this summer. I have had the best experience with the teachers and staff in the 8 years we've been here! My oldest will graduate this year. I would highly recommend the Cabot School District to anyone I know!

An extremely rich school. Where does all the money go? To the football team. Who's games are extremely boring. Why is it that they have so much money and they deal with the worst food company invented. The food is disgusting, I refuse to eat it. The athletics are very political. The football players get away with murder. If I wasn't forced by the military, I would leave and never turn back.

I had two sons graduate from Cabot High School and they have performed well in Division 1 colleges. One son has graduated from college and is a civil engineer. The other son is currently in college and has qualified to study abroad. Cabot High School is one of the finest high schools in the state and, in my opinion, the nation. Every year it has a list of National Merit Scholarship semi-finalists and finalists. The school building itself is a new, wonderfully planned and built edifice that competes with any building in the state. As a retired military officer whose family has experienced school districts in California, Texas, Arkansas, North Carolina and Missouri, I truly believe that the Cabot School System is excellent and serves the military family very well. I highly encourage the Cabot School System, expecially its high school, to any and all families in the local area.

While attending Cabot High School, I did receive a very good education. However, the classes and the School are very large and continue to get bigger so it is very hard for your child to get the personal attention that they may need. But, if they are able to work alone well and do not need a whole lot of extra one-on-one attention then they will receive an excellent education at this school. The athletics are great and the school does have money which allows for needs to be met. I would recommend this school to anyone. I believe that Cabot is a great place to live and it also just happens to have a great high school.

All three of my daughters have attended Cabot High School. All have received what I consider to be a great education. Their teachers have been very involved with the students and really seem to care about them. My two oldest daughters have done well in college and I feel they were adequately prepared. My youngest graduates this year and I expect her to also succeed in college and life, in general, thanks to the great education and mentoring provided by the Cabot School District.

This school has been a big disappointment. I do not feel that the school gives the special education program the attention it requires.

I love Cabot High School. The teachers really seem to care. The one thing that is hard for me is the fact that so much money is spent on football and there is not enough money for books. My son is on the football team and loves all the stuff but I would like English books.

Wonderful school. Great academics, great teachers, and great athletics. I felt very at home here and very safe. Parents were very encouraged to get involved with the school and it's affairs. Mr. Martin, the principal was a wonderful man with great inter-personal skills.

The academic programs and classes available prepare students for any further education he or she might seek. The availability of extracurricular activities is abundant. Students are encouraged to become involved, and there are various programs designed for all interests. Parent involvement is encouraged. However, more could be done to promote more parent involvement. Overall, this is one of the best high schools in the state.
