My children love the school and their teachers. I used to have trouble getting my son to go but now I no longer have that problem. All the staff is very helpful and I never have a problem getting any of my questions answered in a timely fashion. My children and family love CSE.

This is an amazing school! I took my child out of a private school to attend...honestly, i had begun to think there were just no great elementary schools left. Visit here and learn how wonderful education can be...and how delightful it is for a child to be a child...They really do make children the priority!

Cave spring Elementary is the best school in Floyd County. The teachers go above and beyond the call of duty. My child excells because of the love for her school and teachers. It is a very close knit community and everyone dedicates there time. I would highly recommend this school to anyone.

Cave Spring is the best elementary school in the area. The teachers are caring and qualified. The multi-age classrooms are just what my bright child needs to feel challenged and entertained. It is a school of excellence and I re-enrolled my child after he switched schools because of a move. I drive an extra 20 minutes just so he can attend the elementary school.
