The past 3 years I went to Cascade and had a constant 4.0. All of my English and History teachers were great. Science is a joke so don't expect anything of that subject. The main advanced math teacher is exceptional but most students really don't get pushed. Their music, sports, and arts programs are phenomenal. However, I had several 'run ins' with the administrators and find they handle a situation horrendously. That would also be the largest fault of the school.
Cascade is a good school, the teachers are all pretty much outstanding. My child is a 4.0-3.8 student. I have done a little bit of volunteer work here, there are a lot of students I would personally consider 'creepy'. Not trying to be prejudice at all. The school is located in a very wealthy community & to make it fair, a lot of the kids who live in the Highlands go here. If they didn't make it that way, Monticello would have a population of about 850 and Cascade 300. The teachers really do try their best to teach...altough there is one teacher I have heard a lot about as to not really care. Other than that, the teachers are all superb!! They have great athletics placing as no. 1 in Longview/Kelso in quite a few categories. :) English here is sensational as well as Math, & Social Studies!!
