The students go to school to learn something but when they graduate from Cave City schools they are almost illiterate, it seems. The majority of graduates from Cave City schools can't read, can't spell and can't do basic math. No wonder parents are deciding to home school their children! Also, the teachers are strict, refuse to teach the students the subjects that they're allegedly teaching, then expect the students to ace their tests. This is NOT going to happen. The majority of students that graduate from Cave City High School are complete total failures in life mostly because of the teachers in Cave City High School. This is the reason why we're in the process of moving to another part of Arkansas where the schools actually teach their students something and when they graduate they will be successful in life.

Read the reviews: the people who think Cave City provides a good education are students who don't know what a good education is!!!! Cave City is HORRIBLE!! No support for teachers who want to teach. Most of the teachers play all day - that is why the kids like the school. I have never heard of a school that plays as much as this school does. I am so disappointed in this school and the 'authority' figures.

The music programs are great at the school. The community is great in them, and the teachers are amazing at their job.

You're right about the Music programs...nobody really pays attention anymore...I graduated in 2008 from CC and I love the school and the people, but the music programs are nothing anymore. The teachers they have in that department are not helping. But as of the rest of the programs, the best teachers! And just so you know, education is top priority..yea, like every school, sports are a very close second, but none the less, second.

My son graduated from Cave City HS in 2007. He attended all four years there. We moved from a private school in Cordova, Tn. My wife visited all schools in the area and decided CCHS offered quality achademics and solid opportunities in clubs and sports. CCHS is a better school than the private school we moved from... however, David did experience some culture shock for about four months. He graduated with honors, traveled the state playing tennis, joined Christian clubs, and was awarded a tuition and fees schlarship to the college he wanted to attend. He also eaned college credit for two semesters of English at CCHS. Bottom lone, like most things in life you get what you earn and work for at CCHS.

I attended this school several years ago. My experience was not a positive one. The faculty and students do not support the music department at all. I hope the newer teachers will try to treat the students more equal and attend to concerns of bullying in the proper manner.

I used to go to Cave City. I thought that the assistant principal, now superintendent, was an excellent authority figure. The academics are average, but I have concerns about how the students treat one another. When I moved to another close by school, I was treated far better than when at CCHS.

Academics second place to activities. Demands on parents for money/fundraisers constant. Taxes aren't enough, they keep coming after you every time you turn around for more money and do less and less. They seem to be taking state money and putting it in salaries and more jobs not better education, look at the dropping stats in proficiency. Might do better spending less time thinking up activities and more time teaching.

I believe Cave City has an excellent educational program. Students are able to participate in a variety of extra curricular activities. However, I do wish they could get a track/cross country team going. They had a very knowledgeable staff when I went to school there and I was able to graduate with over 20 hours of college credit. Cave City also allows a high level of parent involvement. As for someone's posting about the high school principal I believe they were wrong. I would also like to say that I think your English teacher would be highly disappointed with your spelling. To those of you considering Cave City Schools it has my vote as one of the best. I believe it is one of the most caring schools.
