There is much tension amongst teachers, parents and administration. Under the leadership of Dr. Jessie there is not much room for improvement. Many administrators are beyond the retirement point.

I agree. Dr. Jesse is the best! My son started attending Cascade in the 1st Grade. He is now going to the 4th Grade. Dr. Jesse is very hands on and expects excellence from his teachers as well as his students. He really cares about each and every student and it shows. I am not surprised by the test scores of Cascade students and would expect nothing less. Way to go Dr. Jesse! Keep on doing what you're doing!

Cascade has a great Principal A. Jessie. He is very concerned about the students and the school's image. My son has been there since kindergarten and now in the third grade. He reads on a six grade level and a seventh grade math level this school allows him to be well round. Coach Wynn has an excellent physical education program. Mrs. Moorman teaches him the violin and he is able to take spanish. This school is truly the best in the community and it show. I am so proud to be apart of the Cascade Elem. family. We also, has one of the best PTSA in the city.
