I am a graduate from Cashmere and im hoping to move back so my kids can go to Cashmere. I have nieces and nephews that have all graduated from Cashmere. I work as an educator and have seen several schools in the state and out. Every School has flaws and people who will bash schools are because their "child was wronged" or they hated school when they were there. This is the same issue in all schools. What i do know about Cashmere Schools is yes it is an athletic school that takes pride in their programs. I wasnt a jock and I was treated just like the jocks were treated. I currently live 3 states away and would love my children to be a Cashmere Bulldog! So if you read the negative reviews take them with a grain of salt and remember ALL schools have there issues. Cashmere is amazing and I give it 5 stars!!!
I went to this school district K-12th grade. After entering the real world I felt prepared and ready for college, although I did struggle at times. The best thing I liked about Cashmere, especially at the High school level was the opportunity to make my education. I was very self determined and Cashmere allowed me to take my skills and soar. I was very involved in extra curricular activities including theater, sports, and ASB. I have daughters who will start kindergarten this year and I hope to find a school district like this one. I think with many small towns you will always have those 'cliques' which is a struggle at times, and of course there is the downside to having a little less opportunities than say a 4A school. I also felt that there were a lot more teachers (mostly older tenured) that didn't seem to care about the subjects they were teaching (again I'm thinking middle/high school level) while others went above and beyond for their students. Cashmere has been known for their athletics and I'm proud to say I was a Bulldog, but they also have a great theater and music department. It is all in all a well rounded school in a lovely community.
Cashmere school district is FABULOUS! I am a former student of all three schools! Now, I am a parent! Still love Cashmere schools! My oldest should have graduated 2010 but decided to make bad choices but even though he wasn't a jock persay, the school staff was still always very supportive and tried to help keep my child on track. Lots of parent involvement and close community. Yes sports are high here but academics hold high expectations too. They want to see kids succeed! Along with sports being important because kids need the disipline that sports teach! If your not a jock just get involved that is all the school wants to see! :-)
I personally attended Cashmere High School. As a student if you are not a "JOCK" then the teachers dont look at you the same, this is the worst High School I have ever been to. I also attended Waterville and Eastmont but Waterville takes the cake. Certain teachers that are too old to understand what kids are going through as they get older greately affects the teacher to kid relationship. How are you supposed to look up to and want to immulate someone that is way too old to comprehend what they are trying to teach. The biggest problem is not the kids, food, or security it definately is that the "Seniority" of the faculty plays too big of a role which in turn keeps teachers in the school that should have quit a long time ago.
My son went here for 1 year he and that was more that enough. You better support and involve the sports and sport jocks in this school because they glorify them. They have a good old boy network and your expected to just go along with it. Teachers and administration are just like the clicks in high school, they address things only when it makes them look good, so you better be popular!???
The administraation tends to deny that problems exist with regards to student conduct and safety.
Cashmere school has it s good and bad points but Iv sent 5 children to this school and they all did well , Parent involvement helps a lot, the staff is great if you get to know them..and students are great Ive never seen a group of kids more accepting of handicapped or special needs kids any were. These kids care, in today's world that is huge.
I went through the Cashmere school system from Kindergarten all the way through 12th grade. This was an amazing experience. Cashmere has an incredibly involved community! People were constantly willing to lend a helping hand, or encourage you in any type of way. The teachers within the school system are working to better the education of the students and not just to get a paycheck. Sports are a big deal in Cashmere, only because we have very high excelling athletes, but our drama, band, choir, and much more are also high excelling. All of our programs are great! I would give my highest recommendation to the Cashmere School District and would advise anyone to feel safe sending their children there and know that they will indeed succeed with flying colors!!
I seriously believe Cashmere High School is one of the best schools, both academically and sports-wise. I only play one sport and am a 3.5 GPA student. The teachers at CHS are encouraging and ready to help at any time. I really enjoy going here and would never move to a different school. :-D
I pulled two of my high school students out of the Wenatchee schools and put them in CHS. They are both very different. One is athletic and one is not. One is good in academics the other is not. I have nothing but respect for the students and staff at CHS. My only regret is thata I didn't change sooner. other is not. They are so much happier at CHS. I have nothing but respect for the students and staff at CHS. Iy was
great school! I love CHS!!!! Greatest school ever!! A great place to be
My daughter attended this school for a short time before I withdrew her to home school her. If your child is athletic or able to maintain a high grade they will fit in. I will not allow anymore of my children to attend this school. The teachers for the most part are very good, my problem deals primarily with the administration.
I have two children who have attended high school at Cashmere. Both of them did well there. They received good instruction, particularly in Spanish, music, drama, math, science and English. I think that it helped that both of them were good in athletics. I think that the administration and some of the teaching staff could be more sensitive to diversity. The staff is not particularly racially diverse. The staff could play a crucial role in helping the community learn about tolerance and the gift of diversity. This will happen only with the administration's leadership.
I have gone to Cashmere Schools my whole life. Our school is just encouraging. I personally don't play sports and I don't feel like I am treated any differently than my friends that are in sports. I believe if you are looking for a school for your child Cashmere is one of the best around.
CAshmere is the only school I have gone to and its wonderful. the environment and i know most of my classmates.
As a graduate of CHS, I can see that the current leadership (principal) is not particularly interested in being one of the best schools in the state as in past years. He appears to not be interested in anything other than the power that he has over staff and students. If you are not an athlete, chances are, you do not exist. You will exist even less as a minority at this school. However, the staff try and mostly do an excellent job of teaching and I would consider them outstanding!
The Cashmere School District is an okay place to go to school for children. It has it's up's and down's just like any other school in the state. The one thing that I would like to see the school pay less attention to is sports. The whole school is based on playing after school sports and I would also like to see the coaches stay the same for a couple years. As I know my daughter has played Girls Basketball her 3 yrs of her high school career, and it seems every year there is always a new head coach. I frown upon this very much.
I've had two graduates from CHS in the past several years. Both were 12-year students in the system, and both were very happy their ordeal was over. The entire district is managed toward the middle, and if your student is gifted, he/she will not be provided a truly college preparatory experience, you'll have to do that yourself. Leadership is sorely lacking at all levels, and is managed not for the kids' benefit, but to maintain power and control, even where a little freedom would be educational. If your child is good at sports, he or she will get good grades and do well socially. If not, your child may be in for an unfulfilling experience. This system receives one of the highest rates of tax revenue per child in the state, and does so little with it, it is shameful.
Sports are emphasised greatly, but the atmosphere is nice in that no one can go completely unnoticed. Though the review says that we have 100% internet access, the server is often down. I advise more diverse classes that don't involve sports.
My wife and I have two kids who graduated from Cashmere High School a number of years ago but we keep abreast of what's happening there. We continue to be impressed with the quality of Cashmere schools. No school district is perfect but I don't know of any district that's better than Cashmere.
