About Us

The vision of Cascade Public Schools is to reimagine public education, co-constructing an innovative network of mentorship-based, deeper learning schools with the communities we serve. Recently authorized, Cascade Public Schools is opening a 9-12 charter public high school in the Kent-Des Moines area of Washington state in the fall of 2020.

Cascade will embrace an anti-racist curriculum and inclusive practices, while offering students a pathway to success in college, career, and civic life. We have a “Leaving to Learn” philosophy and believe that learning outside of the school elevates student engagement and immerses students in deeper learning. Consistent with this philosophy, students will engage in a project-based learning model and take on out-of-building internships one day a week. The school has also established a close partnership with Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Puget Sound so that students can benefit from meaningful mentorship experiences throughout their four years at Cascade.
