Posted on 02/28/2018

At the Cabot School District, “It’s about KIDS,” and your student could be part of the long history of academic excellence even if you don’t live in the district.

With the Public School Choice Act, students in other districts may be eligible to enroll in the Cabot School District. Click HERE to watch our School Choice Video!

The Cabot School District is the 7th largest in the state with more than 10,000 students and 17 campuses. We have nine elementary schools, two Arkansas Diamond Middle schools, two outstanding junior high schools, a Freshman Academy that’s dedicated solely to 9th graders, a high school that’s committed to helping students take the next step in their path to success, and an award-winning conversion charter school. ACE and ACE-North offer a unique blended learning environment and flexible schedules.


We strive to create opportunities for academic and personal success to ensure all or our students are ready for the future. With exceptional test scores and first class faculty, it’s easy to see why so many new families, especially military families, join our district each year.

The opportunities at the Cabot School District are endless. Students in all grade levels are challenged daily with exciting curriculum and real-world experiences.

We have a vast array of career and technical courses. Within our 12 programs which include, agriculture, auto technology, AFJROTC, broadcasting, business, construction, criminal justice, Environmental and Spatial Technology (EAST), engineering, Family and Consumer Sciences (FACS), Jobs for Americas Graduates (JAG), and our medical academy, we offer over 80 courses that help prepare students for their future.


Students also have the opportunity to choose from more than 160 electives, including our award-winning forensics, debate, theater, dance, stagecraft, choir, and marching band. In fact, Cabot’s Fine Arts program is recognized as one of the best comprehensive programs in the state.

Students also participate in a dynamic athletic program. Cabot athletes compete in the 7A Central Conference, the largest conference in the state. Cabot has 81 teams in 15 competitive fields of sport.  It’s a tradition for our athletic teams to perform at the highest level and that’s proven by the number of conference and state titles our student athletes receive each year. The Cabot School District also employs four highly experienced athletic trainers. Our Sports Medicine program is nationally-recognized and our athletic trainers mentor other districts in implementing this curriculum in schools across the state.

Our students also score in academics. Over the last three years, Cabot High School has produced 33 National Merit Semifinalists and every year, seniors receive millions of dollars in scholarships.

If you've ever thought of making a change, don’t wait. With School Choice your child may be eligible. For more information and to see if your child qualifies, please contact the Central Administrative Office at 501-843-3363 or email Director of Student Services Michael Byrd at
