  • 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. Academic and career-related curriculum provides dual enrollment programs which allow students to receive both a high school education and credits toward their ultimate career goals.


    Okeechobee County is the home of the Dixon Hendry Campus of Indian River State College (IRSC). IRSC offers Bachelor and Associate degrees, and technical certificate programs with strong emphasis in the medical fields. Programs are also available through Florida Atlantic University, University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, Florida State University College of Medicine, Nova Southeastern University, Barry University, and Keiser University. These institutions all have a presence within a short commute of Okeechobee.
