Center High School has multiple different electives to choose from. unfortunately, MCA and sports are biased within my school, along with pleasing seniors. Even though each school has their struggles, I learned lots of information once I bonded with my teachers. Due to remaining in healthy and diverse friend groups, I came to see how other students were blissfully ignorant to other minorities specifically the LGBTQ=+ community. Plus the lack of helpful information in health ed assisted my fellow student's ignorance within LGBTQ+ sex along with safe sex and modern-day drugs. Along with every schools negative attribute, Center High school did have its great teachers. Ms.Galloway served as the school's underpaid therapist to all the damage and needing children. Ms. Stout opened her room to any student in search of a safe place to eat lunch, amounts. few other teachers who equally emotionally and physically put in effort into their students.

I have been at Center High School since I was a freshman, and now that I am a senior I feel like I know the school by heart. My favorite thing about my high school is how we have the most caring and understanding teachers, and the diversity we have between both the staff members and students. Center High School is a very spirited school, so it's close to everyday that we see smiling faces (even when its finals week). In addition, it's nice to see that Center High School teachers taking time off their day to be sure that students who are having trouble can come to office hours before or after school, and if there are any conflicts whatsoever, the staff solves it so...smoothly. However, with the good, we always have the bad. Something that Center High School chooses to ignore, whether intentionally or unintentionally is its homophobia and bullying that is caused by the students. While the students all love each other, there are some who goes behind their back to spread ill wills.
My overall experience at Center High School was ecstatic! I can't potentially even describe the rollercoaster that I went on. I had so much fun with enjoying the time I had with my friends and peers that I came to be even more grateful for them. I only realized what I had lost after covid-19 had made school be online. As I look back on it, I had great teachers who supported me and I appreciate the bonds that I made with certain teachers. I also loved all the clubs that I joined and the new people that I got to meet while going on trips. One of my favorite parts about Center High School was how they offered a program called Upward Bound in which I got to meet one of the most influential people in my life. I can't simply put into words what Center High School was like but I would definitely describe it as four years of growth that I would repeat in a heartbeat . Go COUGARS!!
