    "Cass is a top shelf Jr. High School. Excellent faculty, administration and a stable and caring school board which is focused on the child. They are focused on spending money wisely and the District is in good shape financially after making some tough decisions a few years ago. We have had 3 children go through Cass and without a doubt feel this is the best district in Darien. This can be seen by tracking the progress of Cass kids vs. the others at Hinsdale South High School. The parent groups are very active in supporting the educational values of the district as well."

    "This school really switched its gears these past few year and this year shocked me the most. The school board had a meeting with parents about some of our kids classes where the teacher would make a video for the children to watch at home and in class they would have work to do based on the video uploaded. To me this was very disappointing because their was no point in the student going to class if they already learned it on their own time."

    "Older comments about this school, are from a very rocky period its history. Unable to pass a referendum, the distict had to make some very hard decisions. The current financial picture is excellent compared to 5 years ago resulting in solid financial reserves. Many programs have been brought back as a result, There are gifted programs and amazingly brilliant children attending this school. Attendance at the rewards program will demonstrate to any parent that this district is truly special. An emphasis on character building results in many wonderful community service projects. Cass Jr. High has met AYP every year. Cass Jr. High students are usually the academic leaders when they arrive at Hinsdale South High School. The school has an accelerated math program and advanced literature courses. Argonne National Laboratories resides in the neighborhood and is a draw for many intelligent and involved parents to the community. The teachers are proven, especially in the core curriculum. The building is well maintained. Student discipline is consistent and effective. Decisions by the Bd. of Ed. are even-handed and do not favor one parent group or another. A very well-run district."

    "I love being at this school! The teachers pay individual attention to each and every student. All questions are answered without a doubt. Teachers are very well educated and definitely know what they're talking about."
