    "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."

    "The teachers and staff care about the students and they help them meet their needs. Cactus Shadows is diverse and has a club or sport for pretty much anything. The school does its best to prepare you for college and the campus and students is very diverse. They have many amazing programs, such as dance, theater, and the sports. The academics provide the students with incredible understanding and there are many resources that can help the students to complete their courses. The only place that the school lacks is communication with the counseling department. They don't listen to students 100% of the time and they tend to go around the situation at hand. Also, they do not help you after you apply for college. They send you off on your onto prepare for college. The counselors do not tell you how to apply for financial aid of scholarships. Also, they do not inform you of deadlines as they approach."

    "The school is centrally located in the town of Cave Creek which is convenient. However, I found the teaching content to be rather un-stimulating and not very relevant. There are a handful of great teachers but there are also some who are very biased in their teaching and don't encourage students to learn and think on their own so much as be memorizing machines. The school district is run poorly and the school does not appropriate funds to where they should be going. The football program by far receives a bulk of the funds instead of equally distributing the money to clubs and sports throughout the school. And administration is extremely unhelpful to students until a parent gets involved."

    "The academics of Cactus Shadows High School prepare you for college. It has a great AP and IB programs in place. It is a family environment and has a significant amount of parent involvement. There is room for improvement regarding having more vocational career electives for students. The school has started offering more electives along this line but still have a ways to go."
