I love Center High! The teachers are awesome and I feel like one could make strong connections with them. I always feel welcomed in school and I look forward to going there. The student population is very diverse and there's a place for everyone in this school. There are also many extracurricular activities such as clubs and sports. The one thing that I would like to see change is the food. The food here is not that great and sometimes I doubt the amount of nutrition that they claim to have.
Review Center High School
Center has been a great place to spend the last 4 years. The teachers and staff are excellent, polite and respectful, some of the students however, often tend to be rude, lazy, and reckless. There are kids that hid behind dumpsters and inside bathroom stalls to smoke weed "without people knowing." The bathrooms are atrocious due to the lack of courtesy of most students. They find it entertaining to throw feces onto the roof and to cover toilet seats with toilet paper covered in urine. The food is awful 90% of the time, with the squashed, greasy bacon cheeseburger or the burnt "chicken and waffle" in addition to the occasional long, curly hair found inside of a heart stopping piece of oily "whole grain" calzone. On the other hand, safety, or lack thereof, the front gates are never closed properly by the kids with early dismissal. The back gate... well there isn't one. A stranger can simply walk through the nearby park and get on campus to initiate any type of terror they desire.
There are so many different types of people at the school coming from different backgrounds and we've gotten foreign exchange students too! No one really cares who is what race or what sexual orientation, everyone is accepting and see each other more person to person rather than focusing on the differences(try to see what they have in common).
