Most teachers are great. Academically, they pushed the students to the limit. Has many good AP and honor classes. Those students who wanted to excel academically went on to good colleges. Can improve at counseling and leadership.

Casa has been amazing so far! I love it! I am a sophomore, and as the end of the year approaches, I couldn't be happier. I started freshman year at Rancho Cotate, which was horrid. The school and classes are easy and almost all kids are passed in all classes without doing anything. The students at Rancho were mean, unwelcoming and they all just wanted to get drunk, even freshman! Then I went to Petaluma High, and the teachers were less than enthusiastic. There is no discipline and no one cares. Then, at the beginning of the year I changed to Casa. It has been wonderful, the courses are challenging, I am currently taking AP World, Honors English, Honors Bio and Honors Algebra 2. It is challenging, fun and the teachers are amazing. They all are there to help and the communication is literally amazing. We have had some amazing speakers come including Mike Smith (look him up) and we even had a "Olympic games" for fun in February. The sports programs are awesome, the football team was undefeated and one game away from state, and the baseball is currently in the playoffs. There are art programs (Photography too!) and the AMAZING Hatchery program, as well as our award winning news paper.

I honestly do not like Casa. I couldn't wait to go to high school, I wanted huge classes, a huge school, and to be extremely busy all the time with clubs and activities. But when i got to Casa, I was just so disappointed. I'm really unhappy at Casa right now. There are barely any clubs I want to join, classrooms are dirty and crammed, there's no ROTC (I wanted to be in that soo bad!), the school can't afford literally anything, and the leadership is terrible for planning events. Homecoming last year was just a dj in the gym with lights and a water station, there weren't any decorations or food except for backgrounds that were stolen off of the floats! And I had to pay 25$ for that ?!?!? I could go on and on about what a dump Casa is, and how there are BARELY any activities since our district can't afford it =_=. But I don't think anyone will listen, so goodbye.

Casa Grande offers a challenging curriculum, for those students interested and capable. There are many opportunities for self-driven students to thrive and excel. Outstanding arts programs include band, drama, art and more. Very high functioning student body. Additional funding would go a long way toward building their tutoring programs, which would help those lagging behind.

I think Casa Grande is one of the best schools around. Although we have a limited budget, and our campus might not be as pretty as some would like, most teachers would give anything to see their students excel and succeed, and help figure out possibilities for the future as well as iron out the necessary details in order to achieve those. Casa is not individually oriented; the teachers continually push, even those who do not immerse themselves in academics, to try and be successful in their own way. Great school =]

I like my school and find that most of the time the teachers are better than Petaluma High and that I really do learn alot from them. I think what I learn at Casa will help me alot in my life.

I am quite impressed with the effort made by most of the teachers at Casa. They have several exceptional teachers in Math and Science, although their intorductory classes have suffered since the inception of NCLB and the standards tests. The Ac Dec Team is a real marvel. Mr. Pillsbury, Ms. Cottle and Mr. Creighton are exceptional teahcers. Any effort you can make to get your child into their classes will be worthwhile. I firmly believe that if they had the budget for it they could be one og=f the best schools in Northern California.

The average student is bypassed. Impossible to get any help either as a parent or for a student. Overall disappointment

The Academic Decathlon team regularly wins statewide competitons and the instructor who runs the program, Rick Pillsbury is top notch. The Wildlife program run by Mr. Fir is exceptional as well and has done much to focus attention on Petaluma's streams and rivers.

The honors and AP programs are first rate. The teachers are stellar and the attention that they pay to each student is impressive.
