    "Cactus Shadows was a very good high school. Teachers are great and always willing to work with you. There is a ton of school spirit and pride here. The campus isn't too outdated like many other high schools in Arizona. Only complaint is that the food is very lacking."

    "My experience at Cactus Shadows has been very good and I have enjoyed my time there. The teachers care about each of their students and if they are understanding the lessons for the most part. The staff is always very caring and always willing to listen. If there is a misbehaved student then the staff will take care of them effectively as well as hear them out. The students there, for the most part, are kind to one another and are active in clubs and sports. What I would like to see changed in how much the staff will participate in events, I would like to see them dressing up more when the students dress up. There are a lot of school assemblies about bullying when they should focus more on the drugs aspect. There is more drug abuse going on there than there is bullying. The teachers should always do there best to help a student not just say, well too bad, when a student is confused. The school is very good but I would love to see the school become even better!"

    "My experience at Cactus Shadows was quite good, but only because I was in the International Baccalaureate program. There are some real gems as far as teachers go, but as far as the STEM department, this school is suffering. In the three years that I went here, not a single Biology teacher was competent in the information required for IB and the chemistry program only has one teacher total, making class sizes ridiculous. Also, the teacher salary in this district is miserable and they deserve more. All my ratings will be only based on there IB/AP program since it's the only thing worth mentioning."

    "I would have never thought I would love high school as much as I did at Cactus Shadows. Through the insane amount of school spirit and companionship, it made my four years as a Falcon unforgettable. CSHS is a fairly new school compared to other high schools, yet, they are still updating buildings and adding on more to the campus to make it even better for their students. The teachers were there for the students, though some did get fired or laid off through the years. This showed that the staff ere only there to watch us students succeed."
