    This is my daughter's first yr at Cass Street. She's in the 3rd grade and I believe the direction and guidance she has been given helped her and her classmates leadership skills by giving the students different tasks "jobs" they are responsible for in the classroom. They also have the latest technology tools for the teachers to use like smartboards.

    I love Cass Street School because the first time I noticed Cass I was taking my two daughters ages two and three to Cass Street Park.I noticed how the principal and staff made sure that every student was put on the buses and as well as parents picking their children up at a decent speed.That's why my two daughters had been at Cass since k-4.They are now in 7th and 8th grade.They look forward to graduating from Cass Street School.

    Cass Street Elementary is a great school. I have a son in 4th grade and also a son in K5. We have been a part of Cass since 2006 and have seen it under different direction by different principals/ administration and I must say that currently with Dr. Anderson the school is at it best in my opinion. Great School. Amir & Jaden's Mom )

    My name is Chris G. & I have a son that attends Cass St. He has attended Cass since the sixth grade. I must say that my hat goes off to the principal & teachers who are at Cass St. I see a lot of interacting with the students in which I feel is the key to my son's continued progress that I have seen in him. All of my son's teachers that he has had have took him under their 'wings' & has helped him more than he might realize. I see the progress & for that thank you Cass St. Staff. There are only two things that I see that might could get more work in is American & Black history. But I say to the principal & teachers please keep of the great work for our children & our future. Thank you Chris G.

    Cass St. is a wonderful school. I am a staff member here and really enjoy it. The rest of the staff is very friendly and I believe the students get a quality education. The school is neat and cleaned and the Principal is always open to comments and concerns. Cass is a great place to learn and grow.
