Great school. Teachers willing to help always. Do a lot for the seniors. Definitely the best school around and they are rebuilding it so it will be updated for the future classes.

We have been in the Cave Spring Middle and High Schools for 5 years. I highly recommend them based on all five of the above criteria, quality of academic programs, availability of music, art, sports,etc., academic/athletic awards (think JJ Reddick & the Barbour twins), the facilities are older, but well maintained, and great parent involvement. You can't beat CS for all around wonderful school!!!!!!!!!
