I am will be a senior in Casa Verde this fall, and I have been at the school since I was a freshman. It has been wonderful to me; the classes, the teachers. However, many students have been transferring due to the underclassman teachers- and some upperclassman ones, as well. I don't have that much of a problem, but a lot of people seem to. And the younger kids don't try as hard as they could on standard testing; they don't take it as seriously. Other than that, I see no problems. A small school, you learn your way around quickly and establish a sense of direction and familiarity with the teachers within the first week or two. The principal, Steve Heil, is a hard-working individual who only wants the best for the school. Technology has grown prominant over the past three years, what with the arrival of netbook laptops available for every student, and most of the teachers having lessons online. The teachers are very friendly and intelligent, I really appreciate how it feels like a second home. I give Casa Verde a thumbs up!

I am currently atending Casa Verde High School and, to tell the truth, so many students who come here who need help. I am assuming that their parents believe that they can do good when they really can't. They are crippling the kids whio can actually adapt to this new learning environment and standing in our way. While we do get the highest aims scores in the county, the students refuse to try. Oh well.
