Greetings Cass Tech Parents & Students:
As Principal of the world-renowned Cass Technical High School, I would like to officially welcome each and every one of you back to a thrilling and ground-breaking school year! I am excited to announce that Cass Tech has been recognized as an Excellent School by Excellence Schools Detroit, a group that includes the Skillman Foundation and the Detroit Regional Chamber of Commerce. Cass Tech has also been identified as a Reward School by the Michigan Department of Education for the second year in a row; which academically ranks Cass in the top 5% of all high school in the state of Michigan. Cass Tech is the only International Baccalaureate Candidate High School, the only one in DPS.
We have several new and returning corporate partners that are offering our students fantastic opportunities – the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), YMCA, WC3, Compuware, UAW, Triumph, Chrysler Automotive Corporation and U of M – School of Medicine. U of M will be selecting 9th grade students interested in careers in the medical field. WC3Middle College classes will begin on September with registration from September 11th – 19th. Additionally, Saturday ACT Prep courses will be provided for all 11th grade students.
This fall the C-SPAN bus will be at Cass Tech on Friday, September 6th and will highlight our awesome students! The C-SPAN bus will kick off the new school year by exposing students to new resources and interactive technology for the school year. C-Span will talk to our students about their documentary contest called Student Cam that has up to $100,000 in prizes. This winter our very own Cass Technical High School marching band will perform in the ESPN half-time show at the Chick-fil-A Bowl in Atlanta, Georgia. Off to a great start!
