    Cherokee Bend is an exceptional elementary school with fabulous programs ranging from the gifted program to the special education program! The neatest class there is FOAC it teaches the kids to '1. Do your best 2. Be Safe 3. Value yourself and others'! This year CBS was awarded the National Blue Ribbon and after being involved with this school for many years (and many more to come) I am pleased to say there is not another elementary school I would ever want to send my children to! CBS is 212 degrees (boiling hot)!

    Our children have done great and the teachers and principal take a personal interest to make sure every child's needs are met. We choose the area based on the school system and I glad we did!
