Principal's Message
Welcome to Cascade High School. We are one of two high schools operated by the Western Dubuque School District. Cascade is located in beautiful northeast Iowa about 20 minutes southwest of Dubuque and forty five minutes northwest of Cedar Rapids. Our high school is located on Highway 136 near downtown Cascade.

With a 7-12 enrollment of approximately 360 students, Cascade High School hosts an award winning academic program, highly competitive athletics and an outstanding fine arts program. We offer many con-current college credit courses to our students as well as post-secondary enrollment option courses students may take at colleges. We are partners with both Northeast Iowa Community College and Kirkwood Community College and Kirkwood operates the Jones County Regional Academy in nearby Monticello providing further post-secondary enrollment options to our students. More than 80% of our students go on to college. A full range of courses and services are available at CHS. Many of our students graduate with as many as 20 college credit hours.

A caring and effective faculty and staff are dedicated to making our districts' vision of "Success for All" a reality for our students. More than half our faculty hold master degrees. 

Our Cougar athletic teams have been very successful. We offer football, cross country, volleyball, wrestling, boys and girls basketball, track, golf, softball, baseball, bowling and cheerleading. We share a soccer program with Western Dubuque High School in Epworth. In recent years we have competed at the state level in baseball, football, boys and girls basketball, track, cross country, softball and golf.

Our fine arts program hosts an outstanding drama department, a nationally recognized dance program, a very competitive speech program and successful band and vocal music programs are offered. Our FFA program is one of the best in the state. We sponsor FBLA, NHS, yearbook, newspaper and SADD.

Our mission at CHS, "developing life-long learners and responsible citizens through professional practices and teamwork" is a responsibility we take very seriously. Thank you for taking the time to look over our website. Please contact us with any questions you may have about Cascade High School and the Western Dubuque School District. Our district philosophy of "Better Every Day" is our promise to do our very best for our students and our community.
