I am a CT alum and a parent of an incoming sophmore at Cass Tech. My daughter loves the school. During her freshman year she learned that CT creates an environment that is reflective of serious education. Principal Ashford is a class act leader who is always accessible to both parents and students. The staff that I encountered have been very professional and dedicated. As mentioned, the parent teacher conferences are very very well attended. It's great to be back home and both my daughter and I look forward to the upcoming school year!! CT #1 second to none!!
I'm an upcoming Freshman at Cass I was there for the summer,and I loved it so much
I will be attending Cass this Fall Going into My Tenth Grade year. Freshman Year was alot of things I expected it to be and some that came as a surprise to me! I expected it to be all work and no play but there are some really fun things you can do while attending CT , sporting events and something I enjoyed alot pep rallys! There is something for everyone from Cheerleading, Writing club and my personal favorite Jrotc. The Staff is great and me knowing personally about being a freshman there are alot of great upperclassmen who are always willing to help if you were to ever get lost (It is a pretty Big School).I would recommend this school to any student who wants to have fun and meet new people but, who also would be able to handle the work load and is serious about there grades!
My daughter just graduated in 2009. She was accepted at U of M in Ann Arbor. She started this summer and received above average grades. Cass Tech really prepared her and gave her the necessary tools to achieve. Cass Tech is a great school. You really have to study and do your homework! As a parent, I always received a warm welcome whenever I entered the school. I was always treated respectfully. I highly recommend Cass Tech.
I am in my freshman year at Cass and I would recommend it to anyone who is open to learning and meeting new people in different cultures. Also anyone who wants to have fun while preparing themselves for an sucessful future.
I am a freshman at Cass Tech and would reccomend this school to anyone. This school has a strong cirriculum and a wonderful performing arts department. Since coming to Cass I have become more interested in school and have developed a sound work ethic. I am looking forward to the next three years at Cass. Class of '12
I enrolled at this school 3 months ago and in less than 90 days, I improved so much! I came from a really bad school and I never used to do my work but after coming to Cass, I became very serious about grades and my future. It's a really big school and sometimes you may end up feeling lonely, but in the end it's worth it because you learn so much... The expectations of Technicians are very high and most kids live up to it. If your looking to be challenged in a wonderful school enviroment then CT is the school to go to. Even if your grades aren't that great, you'll definitely bring it up once you enroll (I obviously did!). Cass Tech, Number One, Second to None!! YAY lol
As a student of cass i learned alot im challenged in alot of areas. but i eally wanted to comment on what a teacher said about the fighting there. 'yeah theres fighting but it doesnt make the school bad in anyway. the people that fight is going to be dealt with. and i know about the fire alarms being pulled, the fighting, etc. those the people that are going to get kicked out of cass because of there grades, i guess you forgot about that part. but anyway cass is a great school and the students that are commited to graduate from there will and have a successful future.
This is a bad school. The worst people are their. Soo Many fights. I really dont recommend!
This school is the bomb! Great people, awesome environment, and a perfect place to learn!
I am a student at Cass Tech. I love a lot this was my school of choice and I feel that I have chose the right school. I also feel that Cass has and allow me to learn everything that I need to know to get somewhere.
I am a Cass Tech parent. My daughter is a senior. She has attended CT since the 9th grade. Overall I must say I am very satisfied with the majority of the teachers, staff and other CT parents. Parent participation is great. Parents and families come out in record numbers at Parent-Teacher conferences and other events. I always feel at home at CT!
I'm a 10Th grader at Cass.. and i love this school!.. i know some people dont really care for it.. but, most of the time its for 'personal reason!' I'm on the cheer team and hold a 3.0 and have many friends. But at the same time i have a loving family. Cass is a school were u need to have a good support system! Trust me! you need people behind you to help you in your time of need or else your find your self lost in the cracks of that huge building we all like to call CT!
I was recently academically dismissed from Cass Tech. I am not proud of this, but I do not think that Cass is the type of school that everybody think it is. People; as in teachers, family and friends expect a lot from you. It sometimes get stressful when you do have other things to do. I am not making excuses due to me gettings kicked out. I am excited about starting a new school, and meeting new people since my choice of friends wasnt so good. I wish my peers that are still at Cass the best of luck.
I am about to start my senior year at Cass Tech in the fall this year, and I can't express how excited I am to begin! This school has been all I thought it would be and much more. Not only does this school have a rare 'curriculum' program (possibly the only one in the state), but the classes are designed to help prepare students for college. There are a wide range of AP and honors classes to choose from. The staff is very friendly, and willing to help. You can tell the teachers really care. CT has a history of excellence and continues to maintain it. Each year, Cass Tech has several Bill Gates Millenium Scholars. The past school year had about 7, with one student whom I know for a fact will be attending Harvard in the fall. My only complaint is that some of the counselors aren't involved
I am a upcoming 11th grader in Cass Tech and like many other I like my high school. Cass, like any other high school, is full of teenagers who are raised by many different parents and in many different surroundings, so there are bound to be some problems. Just because a child goes to Cass doesnt mean that they will be taken from the many things that naturally happen in life like things getting stolen, but measures are taken to prevent that, requiring students to provide their own combination locks is one.
I am a graduate of Cass Tech 2007. Although Cass may have its problems here and there, it is an excellent school. I am now a Bio-Medical Engineer major thanks to Cass Tech. To the person who says they are disappointed, you'll find issues at every school but the curriculm is what is important. I'll never forget my days at Cass Tech they are already missed :). L.Walker
I am entering me sophmore year at Cass Tech and i have no other word that come to mind then excellent! Here at Cass you not only become a student but part of a legacy thathas been around for 100 years. Great things have come from this school,and it's great.The staff is fantastic and principle Ashford does nothing but look after her students and makes sure we remain #1 and second to one. Cass Tech, the one and only true place to be.
I am a junior at Cass Tech and it has been great. It is a college prep school of choice located close to downtown Detroit. You need to maintain a 2.5 minimum gpa to stay in the school. Also there is a multitude of extra-curricular activities you can do, from swimming to plays, plus the NHS, National Honor Society, that gives help on tuesdays and thursdays. It's a great school!
I graduated from Cass in '06, and I never had any problems. Responding to the latest review, I never had any of my belongings stolen from my locker. Granted, I only used a locker my senior year, but I never had a problem when I stored my belongings elsewhere. I thought the new school was very nice, and I hope it will continue to be nice, and that no one will mess it up.
