Cass Technical High School Reviews

Cass Tech Rocks

By , a Former Student on

I am happy to be a graduate of Cass Technical High School. This school sets a great example of high expectations, achievements and is the Harvard or Yale of Detroit Public schools despite newer schools rising up. Competition from the new schools are good but the the copies never replace the originals!

By , a Parent on

I am basically pleased with the teaching staff and the academics my children have received. I am especially happy about the college level math they are receiving.

i am ... I went to Cass in the 80's.  I have had so many benefits from the exposure and the structure of 'Mother' Cass that I can not begin to express my debt to the Woman whose wall I wrote upon and whose coeds I bed.  I am full; in ways that Mullaly, Yelda, Kagen, McCollaugh, Causey, and Ms. Blake will never understand.  Coach Fierce was weird!
Honestly, Cass was my first intellectual challenge.  I was raised hard in Detroit but Cass gave me the understanding of life  ergo college that made me get through and become something more than the status quo.  I think of Cass Tech and know I have been blessed.  I run a non-profit in Lansing and know if I went to Central I'd be not as happy... Dead, in prison, or at the strip club looking for a baby mama.  I love CASS TECH!!!  I love it when the haters call it a pickle factory...

Im graduating from Cass this year and overall, with all the current school closings and dps issues, the students have somehow managed to pull through and protect the Cass reputation. The teachers and staff members all pitch in to make the most of our education. People expect the best from Cass students and thanks to the loyal alumni and current faculty I believe that status still stands.

I went to the old Cass Technical High School and graduated in 1980.  From what I can see, both from the photos on the site and the other information I could gather about the new Cass I am proud to have been a student at CTHS.  I wish I could do it all again!

I think Cass is a good school overall. I went there and I think its more challenging then the school i go to now. I thought my new school was going to be equally the same but cass is way BETTER.

wonderful school!

This is my daughter's second year.  It is not what I thought it would be.  The teachers and staff need to be more attentive to the students. We are taught to respect our elders but I believe you may go much further if you respect these students also.  It goes both ways.

Cass is a great school. I graduated from there  a couple years ago and when I first started college I had no problem adjusting at all. I felt very prepared and I believe it is because of the rigorous curriculum and teachers. I would highly recommend sending your children to Cass Tech

By a Current Student on

cass is not a good school at all!! please parents i am a student at this school, do not send your child here. many parents believe because the building is beautiful that the school is too.... wrong. dead wrong. the teachers are mean. they do not want to help you at all . most of them have the attitude of " you didn't get it the first time oh wee" . that is just not acceptable. the administration , they just don't really care about the students. as long as they look good in the newspaper everything is okay. this is my last year at cass. i regret every minute of my highschool career. my advice to the parents is : home school your kids befor you bring them to cass!
