This is school is rated an "A" by the State of Florida. Academics are held in high regard by all stakeholders. The school has a Principal, and an Assistant Principal who has been named the Assistant Principal of the Year by the district school system and the State of Florida. The teaching staff is 100% certified in their area and considered highly qualified. The non-instructional personnel are well trained, many of whom have 2-year degrees.

Students are involved in improving their own environment by completing activities such as weeding gardens, and laying down mulch. The school takes every opportunity to keep itself safe.

CTE was the best school I've ever been to! I loved going to school and loved my teachers. In my six years (K-5) I only had one teacher i disliked but overall my experience was phenomenal! I'm going into the highschool now, but I thought my input would help influence parents to enroll their kids into such an amazing school! ~ Elizabeth .d
Because it's a Phenomenal school! The teachers are A1, the administration always listens and are there for us parents. In general the children LOVE their school, that's a lot to be said now in these days.
Phenomenal school! The teachers are top notch and the administration really listens and responds to parents. Also, my child has gone to summer programs and has done well with other students nationwide coming from CTE.
Great school very advanced in teaching curriculum. Mrs. Labbar is best teacher ever very devoted and dedicated in what she does. we need more teachers like her.
Great teachers! Very caring and friendly staff! My child scores above avaerage on all of the state testing thanks to the help and prepping from his devoted teacher. My child looks forward to going to school everyday, which means they are doing something right!
great teaching,friendly staff,but a little on the strict side,which isn't always a bad thing.
Cracker Trail has been either an A or B school for the past 6 years. Gifted and Advanced Academics programs available. Art is offered as Imagination Corral for only part of the year. Music is all year as is computer lab. The PTO is an integral part of the program and conducts all fund raising through approximately 4 events during the year. Cracker Trail is definitely one of the best elementary schools in Highlands County.
