What i like about Community Academy of Science and Health (CASH) is as soon as i attended this high school they made sure i had a support system because i was going through A lot of issues with my family and living . When they found out they started jumping to the problem and helped me solve it. Also because i am a senior i was a signed a graduation coach, so he makes sure that i am on track to graduate on time and get ready to go to college .
I always liked how teachers took patience with the students to teach them, and the most of them have for goal to help students succeed. They create programs for students who need a lot of assistance so they don't struggle in class. I also liked how they create opportunities for students to attend college.
