Great school because of great teachers who are always willing to help. There is nothing truly remarkable about alot of the qualities of the school, they're all simply a little above average. When it comes to what effects your student most though, the teachers themselves, I've never experianced better.
This is a great school where the students can learn and the teachers are excellent.
Well rounded, but good grades don't necessarily equate to preparation for college.
My daughter graduated from this school in 2000. They are very college oriented. I found the administration very easy to work with. They were helpful and seemed to be genuinely interested in their students.
My son is enrolled at Cactus High and enjoys it very much the teachers, staff, etc. are very helpful and provide excellent coaching, and teaching to this high school students. My son will be graduating in the fall of '2005' and I couldn't be happier that his days were enjoyable as well as worth it!
Mrs. Cunningham is a great principal and all the students are friendly.
The faculty at Cactus High School bends over backwards to meet the needs of students. Students can expect to receive a quality education and be involved in activities that are led by solid professionals. The school consistently ranks as one of the best in the area academically, athletically, and in all other activities.
I am a former student who graduated in 1980 with the first graduating class. I thoroughly enjoyed my 2 years at Cactus. I miss some of my teachers and think of them often. One of them was Ms. Pittman. She was an awesome teacher. And I remember when Mr. Huber was principal there. Paula Carpenter (formerly Paula A. Coronado)Class of 1980
I have two children that attended Cactus. Both children are very bright. One child is very easy going and wants to do well, and does. The other child has ADD that was undiagnosed in the child's early years at Cactus. Even after diagnosis the teachers in the school just gave up on a very bright student.
Please keep an open campus for the school lunch! These kids have earned it to be trusted! Thank you for your time!
Sometimes communication could be better between the school and parent.
I have two kids that attend Cactus. I have been so impressed by the ""no-nonsense"" approach that Cactus has consistantly displayed. They are focused on educating their student body and providing a safe environment in which the students can learn. I also appreciate the friendliness of the office staff and the encouragement that my kids have received there. Keep up the good work!!
