    "Much is said of the Principal but Mr. Oberg is outstanding. He cares about the students and helps CAT be one of the top schools in Florida. The math teachers are tops. History and English teachers are not at the same level and are unavoidable. The band and robotics classes are top elective classes. The kids are competitive that helps motivate the kids. The school close by is often considered superior. With the exception of liberal arts, that is just not true! Ask how many matriculate into Georgia Tech or Cal-Tech, Lakewood is significantly more focused on science and engineering. It is not always easy we are able to maintain several extra curricular activities. One year in and we can say with 100% certainty that we chose the right school. The regular high school has not been a problem. The students have been friendly and the surrounding neighborhoods are clean. There will always be areas I could nit-pick, I prefer to focus on the benefits that have been offered by this program. The word is getting out and the CAT program is exploding at the seams, my expectation is that it will continue and that will only add to it's reputation as the best of the best will want into the program."

    "Awesome school, great teachers. The students are given every opportunity to succeed. Which results in a A rated school and a Technology Magnet (CAT) that is rated #15 (2014) in the nation."

    "My son attended the CAT program. While the students who attend this school are top notch. The teachers fail to provoke success in there students. The majority of the classes are taught directly from textbooks and there is no focus on helping the kids develop critical thinking skills. In addition there English programs are extremely underfunded and I feel as though my sons education as imbalanced. The CAT program is extremely rigorous. Almost overly so. The kids receive hours of "busy work" each night. As a parent I felt like an outsider no attempts were made to allow me to volunteer at the school. There is almost no school spirit with very few events held for the students. While the safety of the school has improved drastically in the past few years. I would still say there is room for improvement particularly in drug prevention and education."

    "My child graduated from the CAT program on June 2012. Clearly from the reviews the CAT program is top notch. Shoud your child be selected and choose to attend this program be prepared for a heavy work load and often a few hours of sleep. It can be overwhelming at times but not impossible. Though most of the graduates attend Florida colleges to take advantage of the in-state scholarships, your child will be well prepared and have opportunities to attend elite schools outside state. My son was accepted and will attend an Ivy League college this fall. The only knock on this program is the lack of preparation for the AP exam across ALL courses. Some AP courses are geared toward learning and not necessarily to prepare the student to achieve top scores on the exam. Yes, this is a bit shocking and unfortunate to say the least, but we learned from other prospective students while on campus tours their schools did exactly this. Though achieving top scores on the AP exams are a small part of application process, it is ever so important when competing for a few spots at elite schools when only the smallest fractions seperates each applicant. That's my two cents for whatever it is worth."
