I had 3 children go to Cactus High School and graduate from there. Now I have a granddaughter who goes there. It is a good school. The teachers are involved with their students and give them the tools they need in life to move forward and make good citizens and become successful in life. They have a good sports program also.

The school has done a moderate job of protecting it's students. my teenage daughter had been threatened and bullied on several accounts and very little was done about them. the district and office continues to have some outrageous ideas about dress code and recently, i was told that my daughter (junior) would need a vaccination while my other daughter (senior) would not need one. giving us only a week, we got my one daughters vaccination. then a month into school i am verified that my senior daughter will be kept from school until she receives a vaccination. ridiculous! the school needs to get organized. i am not a stay home mom, these unexpected requirements are not easy to accomplish.

I was bullied and abused by fellow students and the school administration did nothing to help. Class of 79-83.

As a previous student, class of 2000, I have to say this is probably the best school in the area. Teachers there are/were amazing. They care very much about individual student progress and push them to reach for the stars. If I didn't live 3000 miles away now, my kids would definitely go there!

The teachers and administration can't even enforce the dress code. That an easy thing to do and they can't even do that. LAZY!!!!

They have a great music and arts dept., My daughter is becoming and amazing musician from the teachers there and the chorus is professional in my opinion-like a broadway show. The academic programs are super and teachers communicate well by email and take interest in students. Classrooms are not overloaded and I feel the campus is safe and well supervised. There are plenty of choices to introduce kids and prepare them for college or life career choices.

i am a student at Cactus. and it is by far the best school to go to. We have a great athletic program and the teachers really care about the students and what happens to them. The teachers want the students to suceed in life and go for there goal.s

As a student at Cactus, I believe I have a very worthy point. The main problem at Cactus is that the students and teachers alike, seem to only care about the minimum. The teachers don't push their students for excelling grades but for what is expected of them. The curriculum is rushed through and no true knowledge is taken from any of the core classes.

This high school is the best so far I have ever seen the teachers respect the students while the students return that repect back. the students work hard in their studies doing their best to uphold the schools excellent reputation. the students and teachers have a special relationship that every parent likes to see.

I have nothing but rave reviews for CHS. My daughter has a learning disability in math and from day one everyone has been extremely involved in getting her the help that she needs and has been immediately responsive. I have seen concern and genuine caring from every single one of her teachers and for the first time in her whole academic history, my daughter loves going to school. I could not be more pleased than I am with Cactus. We specifically moved into the Cactus district so that my daughter could attend there and it was the best choice that we ever made.
