    6 7 8 grades should not be in highschool need to go to school poor academics very bad? your english usage is very poor. it looks like you need to go back to lewis cass jr-sr high school and re-learn how to use proper grammar!

    My school is honestly much more protective than Lewis Cass! Lewis Cass does nothing about people getting jumped by teens and a 40 year old and ends up in the hospital because nobody bothers to help the person getting jumped! Lewis Cas needs to step up their game and help the people getting bullied or they just might as well have cops there in every class every hall outside every bathroom outside the school in the lunch room and just everywhere the students will be! Especially on the buses! Seriously step up your game because you're getting terrible reviews from people!

    Lewis Cass High School has some very kind and caring teachers and staff when and if there is a problem there is always someone to help you threw it. I have two children who go there and they have always been very helpful with there needs so overall I think they really try and are a good school.

    6 7 8 grades should not be in the highschool need to go school is poor academics are very bad

  • (10 years ago)

    quality of academic progams are poor unchallenging at best no programs for children that need the challenge to stay motivated. Music and sports are great activities for the who's who and who's father works where any outside parent involvement is denied the cry for help goes out but is a ruse at best cliquish school difficult to make things right.
