K–12 Schools

The Okeechobee County School District serves more than 7,000 students at the primary and secondary levels. The Okeechobee High School and the Okeechobee Achievement Academy are committed to providing students with a positive, stimulating, and safe learning environment that promotes the development of individual responsibility, acceptable social skills, and academic growth. The Freshman Campus, Yearling and Osceola Middle Schools provide the sixth through ninth grade levels of education with support from the five elementary schools throughout the county.  The district also recognizes the need for a strong, well-trained work force and has implemented the “Major Areas of Interest” approach and has expanded their career and technical programs.
