With an enrollment of over 6,000 students, the school oversees 5 elementary schools, 2 middle schools, 1 freshman campus, 1 regular high school, and 1 alternative high school.  All of these schools are in modern facilities or in completely renovated historical buildings.  The district office is in the first brick school building (1916) and the Okeechobee Freshman Campus is housed in the original brick high school (1925).  Most of our portable classrooms have been eliminated.

Upon graduation, many of our students attend colleges throughout the State of Florida. For those students who would like to remain local, they choose to attend Indian River State College, which has a branch campus in Okeechobee.  The main campus of IRSC is in Fort Pierce, just 40 miles away.  Many school district employees take advantage of a unique fee waiver system that reduces tuition charges for courses at IRSC.  Florida Atlantic University, based in Boca Raton, has branch campuses in the region and occasionally provides courses in Okeechobee.
