I've attended to Cascade High School for all 4 years. The school offers enough challenging and rigorous courses; however, I did wish there were more honors classes for math and science because not every one has the time or commitment. The teachers I've had so far were excellent, they were respectful and they seem to care about their students. The school also provides a good variety of sports, clubs, music/art classes. The school always promote school pride and diversity. The school also provides many resources for students.
The food at the school is sub par, but that goes to many American high schools. Facilities compared to other schools in our school is district is average. Our schools recently changed credit requirements to endorse more students to sign up for STEM.

My experience at cascade was supportive but disappointing. The teachers there are one of the most honest, truthful, and truly supportive teachers I've encountered throughout my education. Although the activities within the school could've been improved. I would have liked to see more freedom entrusted to the students and their belongings. I would have liked to seen the restrooms fixed up with locks that don't open when other doors swing shut. I would've liked sinks that don't make me feel like i'm in a porta-potty. I would've liked more colors throughout the school and more student made things. But the teachers and their strive to help each and every one of their students achieve really gave me hope for most of the past years in high school. Me, now a senior and going to graduate soon, I feel so glad to have all these teachers at my reach. This school and it's students are truly one of a kind.
I believe many (not all) of the problems within Cascade Highschool can be attributed to poor management, planning, and enforcing from the administration. There are problems specific to our area and outside factors, such as average income from parents of students going to Cascade is below the national average, whilst their property value is near double, meaning the general area is expensive to live and people cannot afford it. You can see this by the fact that 45% of our students are registered for free/reduced lunch prices, but for this review I will be focusing on problems stemming from our administration.
