    As a former student of cascade high school I have seen multiple fights go on. The staff rarely tries to intervene with the fights. Most of the teachers will give out an assignment and then sit behind their computer and go on Facebook.

    I go to Cascade a lot of the teachers are indifferent towards their students and don't care about their learning and experience. A LOT of fights which the staff and administration don't do much about also gang activity is present which is not what a "school of pride" should have. After 2 years of attending I am glad to be leaving to attend a different school.

    Cascade is one of the better HS in the area now. The Parent involvement is poor on a whole but there are passionate ones that make up for the others. The teachers we have had contact with are all excellent! My son is actually doing better now than in Middle School. Athletics are getting better and the Choir and Bands have always been tops in the state.

    We have a lot of diversity and we have a food drive that rocks our community. Our kids are compassionate and caring and know that a service effort like the food drive really counts. Our kids manage to collect enough money to feed over 100 families. We also have an amazing staff that does a lot with limited resources.

    I'm a graduate of Cascade High and I couldn't have gone to a better school or had better teachers! The school was well maintained and the teachers were caring and obviously loved their jobs and worked hard to see that we succeeded! Cascade and the teachers who worked there helped pave the road to where I am now!

    As a former student I have to say that the science department could use work. Whoever designed the biology and physics classes seems stubbornly insistent on teaching philosophy and writing than actual science. Science test scores and 4-year university attendance reflect alarming trends. It annoys me to see them call it the 'School of Pride' when many students are indifferent to these problems. The future of Washington's economy lies on high technology and Cascade needs to work harder at creating a good challenging experience for everyone who wants one.

    I love it at Cascade it is wonderful.Our principle is new but shee will catch on to the Cascade way. There are excellent teachers and the students here are wonderful. There are really no cliques it is just a big circle of love. The colleges look at our school alot for sports and many other things.

    As a parent and former Cascade student I have to agree with the January 4 post. Everett has been a blue-collar town where kids left highschool and went to work where there parents did at Boeing or Weyerhauser. Not anymore but I think that mentality has been slow to change. The 21st century workforce needs college educations to compete with the world market. When I went to Cascade only the 'really smart' kids were earmarked as college bound. Now they tell the kids up front what their grades need to look like to get into college not just what they need to graduate by the skin of their teeth!

    It seems that alot of students go to trade schools after graduating. Cascade does not seem to have a above average percentage of students goung off to a 4 year college. The teachers are fine. The athletics very good. The population of students seems to be too high. Other than that it's a fine school.

    While Cascade doesn't have the most parental involvement it is a safe calm environment with a fair number of opportunities for different kinds of students. It has good sports and music programs and lots of good kids. For better or worse the administration and some teachers seem to be working hard to raise test scores and 'achievement ' though test scores are already pretty good.

    I loved Cascade! The teacher and administration were awesome...no matter how bad a student is everyone tries their hardest to help and uplift that student.
