Fox Tech is a great school. As a student, I feel I was taken care of and treated with the utmost respect by teachers and staff in a safe environment. The academics of Fox Tech are to be desired by all schools, I was pushed to complete higher tier classes and earned college credit through courses they provided and through colleges partnered with. Fox Tech has a Medical and Law program, both offer a certification. As a medical student, I was able to become a certified medical assistant before graduation. Although Tech does not offer every sport, the mariachi program is award-winning and recognized all over the state, annually competing and winning. Fox Tech is the perfect balance of traditional highschool with elevated expectations and outcomes.

As apart of the CAST Tech magnet school on the Fox tech campus, CAST Tech is truly amazing. The school it self doesn't feel like a school, it feels like a workplace, glass walls, exposed ceiling and modern paneling on the walls. CAST takes it a step further in the Classroom, Through the use of project based learning they make any subject engaging and more experience based, some projects even helps the surrounding community. What makes us truely unique is the Pathways , CAST offer's the first in the nation User Experience pathway which specializes in design psychology and thinking, CAST also offers Business and Computer science pathways. CAST also offers in school internships with various local businesses to get students experience. Most importantly what truly makes CAST different is the Teachers and Students, we are a very close nit family and we stand by each other. Teachers often have really good personal relationships with the students and actually care about the students lives.
I was in the health magnet and throughout all of my four years of high school, all of my medical teachers would leave either at the beginning or middle of the school year leaving us students with substitute work. This would make us behind on the material we would have to go over or learn for us to graduate with any medical field experience like they promised to give us. However, the other core and elective teachers did care about a lot of their students at all times. Fox tech was a very small campus so everyone knew everyone and it was just way easier to communicate with anyone. Nobody really fought anyone, it was a pretty calm school most of the time. There was a lot of homework all the time but the teachers always said it was for us to get used to how our future college classes would be.
