When I started my junior year at Cato Middle College High School, I had no idea what to expect going into it. I didn't want to leave my friends at my old school, but I knew there was something better for me and that would help me get a jumpstart on my future. CMCHS did just that! Before you even start the school year, there's a Welcome Week, which helps you get acclimated to being on the campus and that helped a lot. The faculty and staff are beyond helpful and only want you to succeed.

Cato Middle College High School is a great school and I love being apart of it. It’s very diverse and you meet lots of great people. There are clubs, associations, and lots of fun events that take place. Cato has a great environment and really makes you feel apart of it! I truly am glad to be here.
Cato Middle College High School is an excellent high school for those who are interested in finishing high school while getting college credits for free. In my opinion this school is the best high school. I wish I would have been able to start my freshman year in this school but unfortunately, I started from my junior year. Nonetheless, I enjoy attending this high school/College. There are many things I love about this school. To mention few, my favorites are the flexible school hour, teachers, diversity, and facilities. Because my flexible school hours I am able to better study for my classes and upcoming exams/tests. I am also able to spend time doing things I enjoy such as volunteering my time to teach others about the bible. I also love the teachers because they are very helpful and encouraging. Coming to this school was one of the best decision I have ever made. I recommend this school to all my friends and family members.
