The School

The Community Action School (CAS) was founded in 1994 by Principal John Curry with the vision of creating a rigorous and supportive program for an academically diverse community of learners. Our teaching staff are highly dedicated and make themselves available to students and teachers, during and after school. They are trained and committed to ensuring that every student is challenged in order to achieve their full academic, social, and emotional potential.
