Center for Academic Success sounds like the name of a high and mighty, stuck-up, prestigious school right? Well we are just like any other school—we have classes, teachers and students. Center for Academic Success is also known as CAS. Here at CAS we value the saying, “higher standards; higher expectations,” and all of the students and staff push hard to achieve that work ethic. This week CAS is participating in school choice week. School choice week is something showing why we chose CAS and why we like it here. Here are a few reasons why we like CAS.
CAS is a great school. Some things the students value are smaller classes, a strong curriculum, caring teachers, and a strict no bullying policy. Smaller classes make it easier to focus and it’s easier for the teachers to give one-on-one attention to students who may be struggling or have questions about assignments and other work. The teachers are caring and always want the best for the students so they try and connect with all students. When you need anything you can always talk to the loving teachers at CAS. Although they may seem a little rough on the edges CAS has some pretty amazing teaching staff.
CAS is full of school spirit, it practically flows throughout the halls of our school. Our school is so full of life and school spirit. We have a strong student council and students who once they’re heard they become as powerful as their words could ever be. We have students who have so much potential and they always show it through extra-curricular activities and pep-rallies.
All together we love CAS and wouldn’t ask for a better school. We have amazing teachers, amazing friends and have so much fun. CAS offers so much for students and that is why we love it here. I can honestly say that I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.
