The school needs improvements in the building. Although they recently put in a heating system, a lot more needs to be done.

The school is safe, but there could be extra measures taken to make it safer. Having a police officer on the campus grounds would be nice.
The teachers at Centauri as a mixture of really amazing teachers and okay ones.
