It has provided me with amazing resources and academic possibilities. Thanks to their dual enrollment program I am able to complete my associates degree and complete many general education requirements before transferring to a university. It also allows me to have a better understanding of the career path I want to take in life. The staff is extremely helpful and create welcoming environment. They are committed to helping us succeed and you can tell they really care about all of their students. The school is very diverse and there is a huge sense of school spirit since there’s so many fun events like snow cone mixers, video game buses, and creative job fairs with games and food. I enjoy coming to school everyday and I am certainly glad to be here!

The best part about going to school at Cato is that it doesn’t even feel like I’m at school! A big part of it is because of the friendly faces. The other students are really nice and even though limited, the teachers and administrators at Cato are awesome as well. It’s a privilege to be able to further my education and create bonds with the people here in the process. I hope more students in the future continue to build Cato up to it’s deserved standards. We walk into school to learn, but walk out with so much more than that; relationships and memories that last a lifetime.
Cato Middle College High School is a great school. To me, this school provides the most college ready courses and allows you to become comfortable becoming a college student while still having a high school experience. The school is very diverse and culturally accepting. Cato is very much a family unit! I would recommend this school to anyone.
