CAS: The Best School

Written by:  Keyauntay Gardner, 7th Grade

What makes CAS such a good school? This is what I asked myself when I first came to this school about 4 years ago. Keyauntay Gardner is my name and I am in 7th grade. As I’ve gone through my school years at CAS I realized that it’s better here than the other schools I’ve been to. This school provides free food, after care, and many other things that you don’t have to pay for. Some kids might complain about silly things like someone bothering them or other small things. I want you to realize yourself that you have it made here at CAS!

I’ve gone around school and asked administration and staff about what makes this school different from other ones. Mr. Loucks and I talked about why our school is better than other public schools. During this talk I realized that I really didn’t need to ask what makes our school a good one—it is obvious. CAS is more organized than every school I’ve been to so far and on top of that, this is the only school where I feel like I can call others around me family. Most importantly, CAS has teachers who really care about you and want to help you.

The last person we interviewed was Ms. Garza. Ms. Garza has been here since CAS first opened and even helped build some of the desks you sit in today. Ms. Garza told us that she really loves the staff and sees the whole school as her family. Seeing her old students grow up fills her with joy but, it is hard for her to let go of her students once they have grown up. Just from her comments you can see there are people here, like Ms. Garza, who really care about you and want to help you succeed in life. I’ve been to schools where the teachers just work to work and students are not their first priority. Here at CAS students are always the first priority and the most important thing to the teachers.

Over all, CAS is loving, organized, has a staff full of people who care, and provides students with almost everything for free. You go to a great school; respect it and take care of it because the people here are the ones helping you plan the future.
