As a freshman at Cass Technical High School, I love the diversity of the school and the opportunities they have to offer! I would recommend Cass for an incoming freshman and increase their chances of having better SAT/ACT scores and deciding on what college they want to attend after 12th grade. They also offer amazing clubs and activities to do after school! Being involved with extra curriculums is important and can increase being social when applying for jobs and scholarships. Although nothing is perfect, Cass is one of the best high schools in Michigan to offer to newcomers.
My time at Cass Technical High School was a very pleasant experience. I have had amazing teachers, such as Ms.Green and Mrs.Willis that showed that they care about their student's well-being success! The school also had wonderful opportunities such as an internship at Mercedes Benz and Mike Ilitch. With most of the students being people of color and in poverty, it is amazing to see to see us get a chance. Although I loved my time at Cass, there are a few things the school needs to change. Students receive a lot of homework and most of it is not beneficial. I have spent countless nights crying over how much homework i have to complete. Another thing the school needs to change is how they enforce rules. One day they tell us that we must wear our ID's and the next day they do not care. Overall, I believe that the positives outweigh the negatives and Cass Tech is the best school in Detroit.
I absolutely loved attending Cass Technical High School! The work challenges you and prepares you for what you may see in your classes during college. This school is very diverse and inclusive of every and all students. If there’s one thing that I love about Cass more than anything else it is definitely their no bullying policy. There’s never a lot of drama going on between students here so it makes life at school quite peaceful and relaxing. The one thing I wished while attending the school is that the staff and faculty considered the mental health of the students over their grades. Though the amount of work can be overwhelming the teachers are very kind and understanding towards students. They always treat the students with respect here and show empathy towards others.
