We've with this school for 3 years now. We had some rough patches with the principals as we went through a transition period without having a permanent one but this year Ms. Lockhart joined our school and things couldn't be better. All the teachers and staff seem to genuinely care about the students. Our PTA has struggled with community involvement but the members we do have work very hard to provide the school and students with a great experience.
I have a child in kindergarten here and her teacher is great - but the principal and pta involvement have been poor. The principal is new to the school this year and I've found him less than helpful. There is very poor communication about events and activities, many last minute notes in my kids backpack. I feel bad for the teachers who don't get appreciated because as a parent, I don't hear about teacher appreciation breakfast, etc, till the day before. I think this used to be a great school but my impression so far is poor.
I've been at this school for 3 years now and through every step i take they encourage me to go on and keep learning. They make every person in the building feel important someway. I've had some challenges on the way but I've learned to fight through them. The teachers here are rated 5 stars the may be tough on you sometimes but that's only because they care about you and don't want you to stop learning. Along the way you have amazing adventures and fun most of all. If you go to this school you know what I'm talking about. :)
This school is the best. Outstanding staff that really care about the kids. This school feels like a family. My daughter went here 4th and 5th grade and before she started there she hated school, had no intrest. At Cascade she never missed a day. Continued to excel and pass the Wasl test every year.
My daughter started mid year of 2004. I was very nervous with her transfering schools and her grades slipping. We both felt very welcomed. Her grades improved in all subjects. I wish we started in kindergarten.
