As an alumni, I feel as though times have changed. When I went to BCCHS, school was fun. We weren't called "Pride of the State" for no reason. We excelled in everything we did. I was in dance, marching band were I served 2 years as a Drum Major, I played volleyball, softball and soccer.! I also won homecoming queen my senior year. Although people down BCC, I graduated with a great 4 year experience.

Battle Creek Central Highschool is a pretty average school. It isn’t great but not bad either. The teachers there are great and really fun to be around but the school itself doesn’t prepare you very well for college. In the future I would like them to build up their curriculum which they have started with career oriented programs and focusing on preparing students for possible careers. It is a good school with lots of personality and room to grow.
I really love that the teachers at Battle Creek Central are devoted to making sure their students are successful, and they are always there for students who are backed up, or struggling.
