About Okaloosa County Schools

Okaloosa County is located in the Panhandle of Florida, known for its beautiful white sandy beaches and crystal-clear water. We are fortunate to have a strong military presence and a well-educated community which supports our schools.

The Okaloosa County School District serves approximately 27,000 students from pre-kindergarten to adult education. Each of our schools has its own distinct characteristics while sharing the unified mission and vision of the District.

Our schools provide a safe environment where students learn a challenging curriculum based on the Florida State Standards. Okaloosa consistently ranks among the top school districts in the State of Florida at all levels of student achievement.

As part of our commitment to excellence, our entire school District has been accredited by SACS-CASI. Our students score above the State and national averages on standardized tests, including the SAT and ACT.

According to the annual Post-secondary Plan, 64% of the graduating seniors indicate that they plan to go on to higher education or to technical training.

Okaloosa high school students are given the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of Advanced Placement (AP) classes at all of the high schools, as well as the International Baccalaureate (IB) program at Choctawhatchee High School.
