Being in High school is the great experience with lots of unforgettable memories. As I entered Center High School freshman year, I was totally lost. I didn't know any students, where the classes were, and didn't know the rules. My sophomore year was where I found myself around my school. I meet close friends and amazing caring teachers whom helped me get settled and feel like I'm home. What I like about my school? I like that my school is friendly and competitive. I love that teachers aren't there just to throw us with Home work and bored us to death, but instead they make it interesting and makes us don't want to not go to their class which I found pretty impressive. Teachers in our school are friendly and caring, they're always ready to help with anything. Our education has beat the ranks, our test's scores are pretty great. I am very proud of my school, and proud to be Center High School student.

I liked Center's spirit; homecoming week, rallies, and close-knit classes helped contribute to the inclusive nature of my campus. There are options for both athletes and honor's kids to follow their passions, though sports programs and AP classes, along with MCA classes for those who are looking for a more social environment. We follow a block schedule that makes it easy to rotate classes, 4 on one day, and then the other 4 on the next day, rotating between the two. Block Schedule makes it easier to balance school with extracurriculars and to make up absences.
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.
