Posted on 10/26/2018

Congratulations to Cabot High School for being named Best Public High School in Central Arkansas by Arkansas Democrat-Gazette readers.

In May, five high schools were announced as the Top 5 nominees. Nominees included Benton High School, Bryant High School, Cabot High School, Little Rock Central High School, and North Little Rock. After more than 280,000 votes were submitted in this year’s Best of the Best, official results were released Friday, October 26th. 

Cabot High School is honored to be chosen the Best High School in Central Arkansas for 2018.


Here is some background about CHS:

At Cabot High School, “Graduation Happens Here!” Faculty and staff are committed to providing a safe environment that promotes academic excellence and prepares students to become knowledgeable and contributing citizens in our society and in the world - every day, and in every classroom. Cabot High School is a 10th-12th grade high school with more than 2,000 students on a 45 acre campus. Even though we are in the top 5 in enrollment in the state, we offer a friendly and inviting environment. 


Cabot High School has over 300,000 square feet dedicated to student learning which includes: 130 classrooms, 12 science labs, and offers a vast array of Career and Technical programs. 

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 career.

High school students also have the option 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 exemplary comprehensive programs in the state. These students consistently perform at the highest level in state competitions.


Our district also offers a unique opportunity for students to join the AP Academy, which provides a relevant and challenging educational experience, emphasizing critical and creative problem solving, effective communication, and community service. Every year, seniors receive millions of dollars in scholarships.

Students also participate in a dynamic athletic program for both male and female students. Cabot athletes compete in the 7A Central Conference, the largest conference in the state. Cabot has 81 teams in fifteen 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 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.

“The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette sends its congratulations to Cabot Public Schools, especially to the staff, and students of Cabot High School, and to the city of Cabot. This honor is well deserved.”

Congratulations again Cabot High School for being named Best Public High School. We are very proud of our staff and students!
