I have 2 children attending this school and they are both very happy. I do NOT have one negative thing to say about Cassell. The Principal and the staff are always going way and beyond.

I had my son in a catholic school since kindergarten except 7th and 8th grade ,, if I could back I would save my money!! Cassell is wonderful school !! Plus if your kids need help all the teachers are very willing to help!! The principle and the office staff are extremely friendly and are willing to help as much as they can. My son loves cassell. Education is excellent! The only thing I would say is get more sports teams,,, This would keep the kids busy.

While the school is okay, some parents have taken over and they run the school. its very "political" often feels like a lifetime movie. Overall its a good school and the teachers seem to really care a few bad apples by way of teachers and parents are making it a bad school along with overcrowding.

My children go to this school and it is less than satisfactory. My daughter is gifted and they tell me they can not challenge her and to send her to the gifted school. So I call the gifted school and the application process is October to December. Chicago Public School System is horrible and Cassell may be a decent school for a CPS school but it really is a terrible school in my opinion. 35 kids per class.

Cassell is great school. However, the overcrowding issue that continues yearly is not being addressed properly by the prinicpal or CPS. It is a shame that there are 43 children in the theird grade classroom in the first of their ISAT testing years. How can 1 teacher effectively meet the demands of all the children to ensure they are ready to take this very difficult and nerve racking test?????

Cassell was once an excellent school, but now it is just a good school. It has become extremely overcrowded in the past couple of years. Third grade has 42 students in the classroom and it is not the only grade with over 40 children in a classroom. The teachers at the school are very dedicated and competent. It is distracting for the students, however, to be in the classroom with so many other students.

My niece loves the school because of the great teachers and the attention they give to the students. I love that it's a magnet school and the students are more academically challenged.

Cassell School is wonderful! My daughter is graduating this year and she is so well prepared for high school! The 8th Grade Students love Mrs. Cohan & Ms. Scanlan and all they have done to make their 8th grade year wonderful!!!! They also have had a great learning experience from Mrs. Cloney, Mrs. Rodriguez, Mrs. Pienta and all of their enrichment teachers! I highly recommend Cassell School!

Even though we are in a big city, Cassell has that smalll town school feeling. You always feel welcome at the school as a parent. My children feel loved and cared for while in school. The staff take their time to know and acknowledge every student and help them to succeed. All staff take pride in their responsiblity of caring for our children educationally and emotionally. Thank you everyone!!!

The education children receive at Cassell School bridges the textbooks with life. This would not be possible without the vision from the administrators and the select teachers who choose to make that vision a reality.

My children have been attending Cassell for many years. It is a good school with a caring staff. Even with the increasing enrollment the students are still receiving a great education.
