The Glades County School District is located on the western shores of Lake Okeechobee and our
District office is in Moore Haven. We are comprised of three schools and currently have 1,650 students. Our smaller size allows for a more personalized experience and is an excellent place to start your career in education. We offer a supportive teaching environment for both students and educators.
We take great pride in our outstanding parental involvement and community support. The Moore Haven School Scholarship Organization offers scholarships to all graduating seniors and The Glades Education Foundation provides unique funding opportunities to students, teachers, and our schools. We also offer the following programs AVID, Skyward, and I-Ready.
What Glades County has to offer beyond the Classroom.
Glades County is a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts from world class fishing in Lake Okeechobee or cruising the Caloosahatchee River to kayaking and camping at Fisheating Creek State Park. If that wasn’t enough the Florida Everglades, a national environmental treasure, is just to our south. We also offer eight parks and other recreational activities.
