When I attended Cactus, I experienced the most memorable moments of my teen years. Overall, it was a great place to make friends that would follow you into your later teenage years. Many people blame Cactus for being a bad school, but it's more about the people you surround yourself with and how you manage your grades, as-is for your grades in high school or college, though students may not realize it yet.

This school is a good school for kids. I just don't like how my friends, tell me about all these fights that they have. It would be a five-star school only if the kids/students there would have better control of themselves. I would really recommend this school for other students. A feel like a little bit more can be improved but, so far this school is great to go to.
Cactus Medical Health & Technology has many wonderful opportunities for every child to become successful! The new elective classes are amazing! You can truly see the effort that Staff, Teachers and Admin have inputted to make Cactus a great school! Well done!
