My experiences at Cass Technical High School is amazing! From my first day of freshmen year to my first day of senior year, I was always excited to come to school to see my friends and learn new things everyday. Everyday at school I learn new things and if i didn't understand a certain thing, I wouldn't hesitate to ask my teachers who are extremely kind and supportive. Cass Tech has a bunch of programs and clubs that you can choose from, no one feels out of place at Cass Tech, everyone is welcomed and accepted. The students of Cass Tech know that we have a voice and our principle as well as teachers support us when we protest for something we believe in. The diversity at Cass Tech is amazing, we learn something about one another's culture everyday and we have fun while we do it. I will surely miss Cass Tech when I graduate in June, its a place where i felt at home and a place where many memories were made.

Best high school in Michigan, and possibly, in the US! Academics wise, you will be challenged. The teachers do their jobs which is always a plus. You’re constantly seeing a new person everyday. Socially, Cass is very social. The only downside is that the school can get dirty considering there are almost 3,000 students in attendance.
Cass tech is the ultimate high school. Upon starting my schooling there, I realized that it lives up to and beyond it's well deserved hype. There are so many opportunities and extracurricular activities that you wouldn't just find at any other school. I recommend application to Cass Tech for anyone who wants to be a future Cass technician!
