Cedar Ridge High School is an accredited comprehensive public high school located in Newark, Arkansas, United States. The school provides secondary education in grades 6 through 12 for approximately 220 square miles (570 km2) of rural, distant communities of eastern Independence County, Arkansas including Newark, Cord, Charlotte, and Oil Trough. It is administered by the Cedar Ridge School District. In 2003, Cedar Ridge School District was formed resulting in the consolidation of the former Cord-Charlotte High School and Newark High School.
