Cascade High School gave me the skills to jump right into the college atmosphere at Western Oregon University. The AP classes, Advanced English classes, as well as the Independent Art Classes have helped me academically as a Visual Communication Design Major. Resources were provided such as monthly
... Read more scholarship updates my senior year. The counselors were always willing to work with you on your goals/aspirations when you asked. Also, the process of the exit interview was VERY helpful in assisting me to get the student leadership/ job opportunities that have sustain me through college. I will be a graduate with my BA in design in June, 2013. This would not have been possible without the inclusive learning environment that Cascade provides. The attitude and dedication from the teachers and staff from Cascade help students gain confidence in themselves. Read less

This was a great school that equip me very well for life after I left. Not only were the teachers helpful in every way, but the small town atmosphere of the school was something that helped me, and many of my class mates, have a great learning environment. Every staff member will go out of their way

There are always greedy people out there and Cascade has currently solved that problem once it arose. I makes me sad when people can not look past their OWN selfish ideas to see that all these teachers and staff alike have chosen a career that's main focus is the students! Cascade is a great school and everyone who has graduated from there would agree! Read less

Cascade High School was incredibly disappointing and is an unsatisfactory educational environment. The school is run by inconsiderate, selfish, power-hungry idiots with no concern for the students' weel-being. There is absolutely no sign of adult leadership at this school. I removed my children from

I can't say this is the best school ever, but I can say that I liked it quite a bit. The smaller atmosphere allows you to know everybody in your class and have decent relationships with most of them. I have met some of the biggest influences in my life at this school, the teachers. Mr. McBeth my 10th

As a former student at Cascade, I did feel adequately prepared as I left high school. I took all of the required classes while participating in sports. After talking to a lot of my friends, they too feel that Cascade does as good of a job as any in preparing us for college and life. In fact, in the

This is because I was taught how to form an essay or a paper, along with other basics needed whereas other students hadnt even heard of a thesis statement(which I learned about at Cascade). Read less

Cascade High School is a poor environment for education. As a former student I felt awe when I entered my college education. There were expectations of knowledge, and in most instances the things that were required were not taught at Cascade. Most students don't know the proper way to write a formal
... Read more essay or paper. The emphasis is placed on getting the bare minimum taught and then shoving the kids out the door. It is sad to me when I think of all the kids that have been educated so poorly. A child cannot teach themselves everything and it is not too much to ask that a teacher be willing to provide a good base for life. An emphasis is placed on sports rather than academics. Life isn't learned on the playing field. At some point you have to hang up your cleats and move on to the real world. Read less
