My experience at Centennial High School was an average one. I do not have any complaints. I appreciated all my teachers; majority of them wanted to help and had all of our best interests. I just wish they aided us more in the transition from high school to university/college. I think there should be courses implemented on college. It could include how to prepare mentally for course work and how to efficiently plan out college courses for specific majors. I think a lot of students from my school went into university or community college just picking courses without knowing how it affected our majors. Me included, I switched my major multiple times because I did not have a good understanding of course planning and a broad knowledge of all the types of majors out there. Implementing these classes could prepare students for college or even technical schools and it shows more support for students as they enter adulthood.

I attended Clark County schools all my life up until I moved shortly after Freshman year. The difference between my current school and Centennial is astounding. While Centennial provided a typical "crazy" high school experience, the overall culture is very toxic and no one is trying to change anything. The administration never seems to care and the teachers are underfunded and worked to the bone. Students either don't care or burn themselves out trying to get into a good college that the school ultimately didn't prepare them for. This is true for most schools in Clark County.
I personally enjoyed my four year experience at Centennial High School. For three of my four years, I played football for the Bulldogs and during my senior year we made it to the State Championship game. The school overall has an exceptional athletic programs with coaches who really know what they are doing. Academically, the school is good with the core classes and criteria. The teachers do their best to help get the students involved and engaged. Staff and administration are extremely kind and helpful. Facilities like bathrooms and some classrooms could use some improvement however. Personally, I think the school should put more money into new school supplies like textbooks and chromebook computers instead of other areas.
