Celina High School Reviews
At CHS, there is stronger emphasis placed upon sports than academics. The student body is predominantly white and a Christian value system dominates school culture at times to the detriment of LGBTQ students. Greater resources could be invested in ensuring that minoritized students make it to graduation and are set up to succeed in a college setting. I’m addition, more effort could be made in creating an environment where all students feel like they are valued and respected members of the community. Trainings for staff on issues related to diversity and inclusion, such as implicit bias in school discipline, could mitigate some of the negative outcomes that students of different backgrounds must grapple with.
Celina High School is a very average high school. The staff is friendly and helpful. Most students are easy going and approachable. There are a few downsides with their focus on football. I didn’t really know what the academic activities were, they weren’t advertised enough. I also noticed that the few academic UIL’s weren’t congratulated enough when they went to state. For example the Cross Country, Volleyball, and Special Olympics usually have send offs which is when the student body line the halls and wish them luck on their competitions, but when it came for the debate team, the thespian society, even the choir going to state/finals, send offs never happened. I think that the principal preaches about leadership and teamwork a lot, but its the little things that really perfects a school. For the students who have a lot of time on their hands, they can’t find that many activities. More clubs can create a diverse group of people and maybe give the students a new interest.
Celina High School is filled with students and staff alike who pursue academic excellence and take pride in its sense of community. Not only are students heavily involved in academics, but also extracurriculars. Teachers and staff devote their time to their students in order to help them achieve with goals, and in time form a special bond with every individual student to motivate them to achieve at their highest ability.
