Dixie County Public Schools


Dixie District Schools is a small rural school district that benefits from much community interest and support. Our instructional salaries are above most of the neighboring counties and we have a health insurance plan that is one of the best in the state. About 2,000 students, K-12, attend our 5 schools within our Dixie School District School System. 2 elementary schools with Pre-K, 1 middle school and 1 high school with a vocational program offered. G.E.D. and Adult Welding classes are offered in the evenings. Faculty, staff, parents, and students strive together to achieve academic excellence in our classrooms. The Dixie District School System is located in Cross City, Florida, and connected to the outlying communities of Suwannee, Jena, Old Town, and Horseshoe Beach. We are a largely rural Gulf coast county with a wealth of natural resources. Dixie County is nestled between two beautiful rivers, the Suwannee and Steinhatchee. Our schools are the heartbeat of the community. There are four schools within the Dixie District School System in grades PreK-12. There are two elementary schools in our county, Anderson Elementary located in Cross City and Old Town Elementary located in the eastern boundary of our county in Old Town. Ruth Rains Middle School is located in Cross City along with Dixie County High School, which is our one comprehensive high school. Our vocational technical school lies adjacent to and is part of the high school campus, which serves grades 9-12. The Dixie School District operates the Dixie Alternative Education Center, which provides adolescents and young adults the opportunity to successfully complete their educational goals. The center utilizes compass software for academic assessment, academic remediation course credit, pre-GED and GED preparation. We have many programs that enrich the life of students and they include Accelerated Reader, Yearbook, Leadership classes, FFA, High Q Teams, VICA, HOSA, and FBLA. Athletic activities offered include football, baseball, softball, volleyball, and basketball. Dixie District Schools enjoy a close relationship with the community, businesses, families, and volunteers.
