Open Quote What your statistics don't show is that this is a transfer high school whose mission is to work with students who have struggled in their traditional schools. Cascades is filled with caring supportive staff and teachers who have helped my child individually and who I can honestly say worked with him so wonderfully that he was able to graduate from high school. They don't give up on students the way other schools do. Close Quote

Open Quote My name is Serafin Abreu I'm a former student of Cascade Center for Teaching & Learning and before I studied there I was not doing very well in the other 4 schools I went to and since the first minute I arrived there I truly felt that they really cared and actually tried to understand their student body, now I'm a college graduate (bachelor degree) and I truly feel I owe it all to them.

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
