Welcome to Okeechobee County Schools

Welcome to Okeechobee County Schools. Despite experiencing a national pandemic for the past several months, we have managed to stay on track and, in fact, have many celebrations.

Artha Jonassaint, former OHS grad and second year student at Harvard University, was recently elected Southern Region Vice President of the National FFA Organization.

Krista Stanley, 6th grade mathematics teacher from Yearling Middle School, was selected Florida State Teacher of the Year.

Our Bass Club was named Club of the Year for the State of Florida, our FFA chapter continues to shine winning many state competitions, and our athletes are to be commended for receiving several district and regional titles. 

We were recognized by the College Board for having 100% of our AVID graduates accepted to a four-year university.  We ranked 5th in the College Board Partnership for increasing the percentage of students who took the PSAT 8/9, increasing the number of students who took an Advanced Placement Exam and increasing the number of Advanced Placement exams with 3+ scores. We ranked 10th in the percentage increase in the number of Advanced Placement exams with 3+ scores by minority students.

We are blessed to live in a community that supports education. We are so fortunate to have a kind and dedicated staff to lead our students to greatness with the help of their parents. 

Thank you for being a part of this winning combination.
