a sad excuse for a school, more like daycare with incompitant babysitters. principal doesn't know what he is doing. counscelor is led by the children (guessing no degree). all around the school is ill equipped to deal with the obsticles of middle school children.
I went to Cascade for 6th grade in the middle of the school year. I only made one friend, and met a couple of could be friends. Some students were okay, some were fun, some were just rude people. The teachers were good. My favorite would have to be Mr. Rudy. The staff was welcoming, though sometimes things lacked. I have to say, the school could have better cuisine. The only thing they had close to a salad bar was a couple boxes of salad. They could have done better with that, making a full salad/fruit bar and took out one of the less healthy food bars. I still love the school nonetheless and hope to be there for 8th grade.
My daughter does very well at Cascade. But one time she turned her work in and I was frustrated and saddened when I learned the teacher extended the deadline because most of the class did not finish their work. The students who failed to finish need be graded lower. Or even tougher, given a F for that assignment. I believe so. My daughter tries hard to do well and I hope the teacher grades her far above the rest for her effort.
Cascade is a very positive place for my daughter...she is thriving in this environment and is taking advantage of the clubs, band, and leadership opportunities offered! Teacher /parent communication is excellent, and has helped her be on track. At the end of 6th, my daughter is an organized, responsible learner! T
Cascade had many opportunities for our daughter in choir and athletics. She enjoyed the teachers and the school is beautiful. The electives offered were helpful for her, and the school advisor made sure that she was placed in challenging core classes.
