About Us

Cass Technical High School celebrates over 100 years of Excellence in Public Education!

We continue to prepare students to pursue their goals and fulfill their highest destinies.  Unquestionably, our new building, which has earned several architectural awards, serves as a catalyst toward sustaining and strengthening our status as a progressive and educationally-efficient institution.  These recognitions join our existing distinctions of being twice recognized as a “Blue Ribbon School” by the U.S. Department of Education, twice recognized as one of America’s Best High Schools as featured in Redbook Magazine, earned the title of being a “Grammy” Signature High School,” and named a “Demonstration School” by NABSE (National Alliance of Black School Educators).

Other notable accomplishments that add to our enviable record of excellence in public education include being selected for National ACT/Education Trust Study, awarded the   Green Flag by the US Department of Environmental Justice of IPM Implementation, honored twice as a recipient of Michigan’s Governors Cup and the National Excellence in Education Awards, and cited by U.S. News and World Report as an Outstanding School and awarded a Bronze Medal for 2009.  Additionally, we have earned numerous yearly academic and curriculum awards:  8 Merit Finalist and 13 Achievement Finalist in the last six years, 1st Place Coca Cola Art Award for 3 consecutive years, 6 consecutive years of our Architecture students chosen for Charettes, 10 consecutive years of National Art Awards, 13 consecutive years National Academic Games Awards, 14 consecutive years of Grand Awards at Metro Science and Engineering Fair, and our students earned 16  Bill and Melinda Gates Millennium Scholarships in the last five years!
