My experience at Center High School has been great. What i like about Center Schools is that our students have a great amount of opportunities and they do an amazing job at preparing students for college. One thing i would change about the school is how they discipline students when they are being disruptive. Many teachers let other students walk around the class or halls or talk during lecture. Other than that, my experience was awesome!

I've been attending school in Center my whole life. I have been extremely please with everything my school has had to offer. Since I've been in middle school, they have been preparing us for college, and thanks to this I feel like I am ready to attend a university. The teachers here are amazing and are pretty easy to get along with. They also care about your education and make sure you're involved with academics. Parent involvement is very important here so parents know exactly how their children are doing in school. I am extremely pleased with this school and I am thankful for everything that I've been taught and all the opportunities I've been given as well.
My experience in Center High School is very great! I enjoyed coming to school every day into a safe environment. What I like about Center High School is that the teachers want you to learn and what you to succeed in the future in whatever goal you had. Center High School is a great school to come and learn! I would a little change which is hoe the system works using technology.
