Cass Technical High School Reviews

In the four years that I attended Cass Technical High School, I have truly enjoyed this experience. Cass Tech provides students a safe, educational learning community where students develop lifelong relationships, become a family. When the curriculum became challenging, Cass was able to provide me with tutorial services and encouraging mentors. Cass Tech also allows students to be their selves. The atmosphere is filled with respect and compassion. Even though, the work can be challenging, there are extra curricular activities for everyone. I had the opportunity to be a part of the infamous, Cass Tech choir. There were challenging times, but I was and am determined to succeed!
Review Cass Technical High School
I had the best four years at Cass Technical High School! The principal and staff made my transition from middle school to high school smooth and welcoming. I am proud to say that I will be graduating from Cass Technical High School in 2018. Cass has a lot to offer such as all sports, extra curricular activities, and a Dual Enrollment program where you can get your associates degree in high school. Parents who enrolled or plan to enroll their child at Cass Tech will not regret their decision!
I had a really good high school experience. Cass Tech. is one of the premier high schools in Detroit, MI. It is very competitive; acceptance depends on testing scores and other academic criteria. The academics are challenging, and definitely prepare you for college. Extra curricular activities are abundant, there's something for just about every student. The biggest pitfall is the cafeteria food and lack of variety and vending machines. I played on two championship teams and met some life-long friends. Love it!
