My experience at Center High School these past 4 years have been amazing. What I like about this school is that the experience is like the high school in the movies and the sports, games, rallies, dances, clubs, and all the school spirit is amazing! What I would like to change about Center is that there should be more diversity among the teachers, because majority of them are white, but besides that, I've had a great experience at Center.

High school experience depends on you. You want to be involved go for it, you don’t want to do anything your choice as well. I took (7) AP classes and the teachers put in maximum effort to make sure we understood the material and passed the exams. After those classes GE in college right now seems like a breeze. The teachers for the most part are caring and will help you out. For me the atmosphere and people were laid back and chill, everyone minded their own business. It’s a really diverse school but people tend to group up by ethnicity, at least that’s how I saw it.
I would like to see more emphasis placed on helping the students prepare for 4-year universities, not just preparation to get accepted but preparation to be successful in their undergraduate career. The teachers at Center mainly focused on showing students how to pass exams instead of facilitating critical thinking and problem solving. Both the teachers and families need to reform their teaching strategies to encourage students to appreciate education as a tool to cultivate the mind and strive to improve their individual selves along with increasing the welfare of their communities.
