The Center for Academic Success high school (CAS) prepared me very well for college. I was able to take college classes at Cochise College through a grant that my counselor at CAS introduced me to. The teachers and staff are very friendly and work hard to keep the school's environment educational, safe, and healthy. Although CAS does not have all the classes that a bigger high school would have, their students can grow in knowledge due to smaller class sizes and amazing teachers. CAS has many great clubs that are globally known such as CyberPatriots and Key Club. They also have great classes and programs for engineering.

I joined CAS Sophomore year of high-school.
Pros:
Lower student to teacher ratio, so individual student's needs are met.
Free lunch and snacks, especially good for low-income families.
Focus on STEM
Very credible teachers
Dual-enrollment classes with Cochise College paid for by CAS
Bathrooms and classrooms are clean

Cons:
Offers NO sports
Where rejects from other schools go
Did not offer language classes until 2018
Lunch is calorie dense and unhealthy
Education is poor in Arizona
Do not advocate college, scholarships, or going out of state as much as they should
Favoritism in the staff
Fights often
Small school, only one hallway
I believe it to be a great school over all, I thouroughly enjoy the fact that I could do a lot of classes online so that I could get a head start and graduate even earlier than anticipated. I do have my negative views on the school, but only with some of the staff that they let teach kids whom are fired due to future issues that seems to be a big thing there. Other than that, it’s a great school to do dual enrollment in and to help makeup credits or graduate early, it’s also a very work friendly environment and helps students adjust their schedule to help them get hours in at work.
