Cascade Education

Growing up in Cascade

Cascade takes the education of their youth very seriously, and as a result students in the local school districts consistently exceed national testing averages. Five public school districts serve the region with one preschool, one elementary school, one middle school, one high school, one alternative high school and one school serving kindergarten through 12th grade. All schools are dedicated to providing their patrons with an enjoyable and enriching educational experience, and the high schools also offer strong athletic programs and extracurricular activities.

In the broadest sense, education is a life-long process that can benefit all aspects of our lives. The region has a great deal to offer, with instruction in many forms of recreation and the opportunity to educate oneself in the intimate knowledge of the land, using the many resources offered by the staff of the National Forests.

A Letter from our Superintendent

Welcome to Cascade Idaho. My name is Kevin St. John, and as the superintendent of the Cascade School District I want to say welcome to Cascade, Idaho.  Our focus is a quality education for every child and to educate every child it requires positive involvement from everyone – “It takes everyone, to educate everyone.”  Which is why we value our relationship with our Chamber of Commerce and each individual home.  We have student representatives regularly attending Chamber meetings and our students can always be found volunteering to help events be successful.  Cascade Schools is an institution with a strong history of supportive parents and businesses and that connection is a lynchpin to our quality.  

Cascade Schools mission is to, “Engage every student every day in character development and rigorous education.”  Our current test scores are well above the State average and our District is purposefully continuing its efforts to raise standards even higher.  Cascade Schools is an awesome place.  We have a dedicated, knowledgeable, & caring staff and we have a favorable connection with our community.  When we say “We are Cascade Schools” it speaks to our being a family.  The Rambler Five speaks to our beliefs. Go Ramblers!
