The education I received was fantastic. The curriculum and courses prepared me for my college academic experience. However, I felt that most of the staff did not care for the students. Student athletes were "favored" and almost never received discipline when they clearly broke school rules. Any over student would receive punishment, but never a student athlete. It was very evident Center Grove cared more about athletics than anything else. Also, during over half of the school year, the school was under constant construction, inside and outside, causing confusion and havoc to students trying to get to classes. Don't get me wrong, some teachers I had were exceptional and had all students best interest at heart. The administration was the problem.
I have special needs and I needed to have accommodations that help me stay focused and driven. Center Grove High School administrators, teachers and students went above and beyond to include me and to help me with my education and athletics.

My teachers were more than accommodating and made sure to follow my IEP to the letter. My resource teacher made sure to include me and my parents in the decision making about my educational experience and athletic experiences while at Center Grove High School.

During my four years at Center Grove I maintained a 3.65 GPA and just received my core 40 diploma. In addition, I was voted Homecoming King and Prom King.

I was the manager of the JV and varsity boys basketball team and even was asked to play on the varsity team my last game as a senior. Outside of Center Grove I became the United States Youth Ambassador to Special Olympics Indiana.

I am currently at UIndy today because of the caring teachers and students at Center Grove.
