this school has very smart and nice kids!i would not trade it for any other!there should be more school like cassell!the students are well trained and behaved!
While the school is okay, some parents have taken over and they run the school. its very "political" often feels like a lifetime movie. Overall its a good school and the teachers seem to really care a few bad apples by way of teachers and parents are making it a bad school along with overcrowding.
This a great school and to be rated 7 out of 10 is injustice .Great school with a great programme and the best staff
My children go to this school and it is less than satisfactory. My daughter is gifted and they tell me they can not challenge her and to send her to the gifted school. So I call the gifted school and the application process is October to December. Chicago Public School System is horrible and Cassell may be a decent school for a CPS school but it really is a terrible school in my opinion. 35 kids per class.
My son goes to Cassell and I am very impressed on how the teachers have helped him throughout the 4 years he has been attending Cassell. I feel very fortunate to have the support system this school has to offer for special education students. I praise the work they all do. It s sometimes very frustrating dealing with a child who has learning disabilities. I never knew how great the CPS system worked and I have been left speechless. Keep up the great work cause I have 2 more coming!
Cassell is great school. However, the overcrowding issue that continues yearly is not being addressed properly by the prinicpal or CPS. It is a shame that there are 43 children in the theird grade classroom in the first of their ISAT testing years. How can 1 teacher effectively meet the demands of all the children to ensure they are ready to take this very difficult and nerve racking test?????
Cassell was once an excellent school, but now it is just a good school. It has become extremely overcrowded in the past couple of years. Third grade has 42 students in the classroom and it is not the only grade with over 40 children in a classroom. The teachers at the school are very dedicated and competent. It is distracting for the students, however, to be in the classroom with so many other students.
My niece loves the school because of the great teachers and the attention they give to the students. I love that it's a magnet school and the students are more academically challenged.
Cassell School is wonderful! My daughter is graduating this year and she is so well prepared for high school! The 8th Grade Students love Mrs. Cohan & Ms. Scanlan and all they have done to make their 8th grade year wonderful!!!! They also have had a great learning experience from Mrs. Cloney, Mrs. Rodriguez, Mrs. Pienta and all of their enrichment teachers! I highly recommend Cassell School!
The Art teacher is so great, my son loves to take art classes every Tuesday. They realy do great things and develop our kids minds to explore the art.
Even though we are in a big city, Cassell has that smalll town school feeling. You always feel welcome at the school as a parent. My children feel loved and cared for while in school. The staff take their time to know and acknowledge every student and help them to succeed. All staff take pride in their responsiblity of caring for our children educationally and emotionally. Thank you everyone!!!
The education children receive at Cassell School bridges the textbooks with life. This would not be possible without the vision from the administrators and the select teachers who choose to make that vision a reality.
My children have been attending Cassell for many years. It is a good school with a caring staff. Even with the increasing enrollment the students are still receiving a great education.
It is a small school where the teachers and staff know and care about every student.
Cassell is such a welcoming and enriching school. The faculty and staff work so hard to enhance the students learning!
Cassell has such a wonderful faculty and in such a small community. The teachers find ways to make learning enjoyable for the students.
Cassell is a wonderful school. The teachers and staff take pride in each and every child. They are building a great foundation in our children to succeed in the future. Thank you.
Cassell is ran by a staff that truly cares about OUR children. It is a school where staff, students and parents all work together as a team with a common goal. To make OUR school the best it can be. And we continue to look for ways to make learning fun and exciting.
I love Cassell because it isn't just a place where my child learns. It is where she spends most of her day with 'family.' It is a small school with huge hearts.
Cassell is a great school, because the staff and teachers really care about the students. They reach out to everyone in their class room and make that difference in their learning.
