My child graduated from the CAT program on June 2012. Clearly from the reviews the CAT program is top notch.

My son just graduated from this school. Initially after qualifying to attend the CAT program he only made it through his sophomore year (his own fault, started to coast on homework issues.

It's true that the mojority of CAT students are seperated from traditional ones, but a few of traditional students are in a couple of CAT classes. CAT students are kept mainly in T-Wing (CAT Building) and A-Wing (the building adjacent to it). The only classes that are outside those two buildings are ...  Read more

My student is in the CAT / Magnet program there. Some teachers are not real great: 1. One made fun of most kids that asked a question (How else do they learn and get clarification) 2. One or two don't really teach, just expect kids to get it all out of the book. When student is sick, a common ...  Read more
