My experience at Center High School over all was pretty good. The teacher I had all four years helped me to success throughout the years. They pushed me to work hard in my classes, and pushed me to get good grades. Center High School had classes that challenged me, but with the help and support I got from teachers I was able to learn. The culture of the school was friendly, and hardly ever were there bullying or violence that occurred. The class sizes weren't too big either, which gave teachers the opportunity to work with students one on one if needed. My only complain about my school district would have to be the lunch, the lunch on most days were appetizing and hardly ever taste bad. But there are a few items on their menu that most students in the school disliked, and a few items were so common throughout the week. The school gives hamburgers at least 1 a week, and the serving sizes aren't large enough for the high school students.

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.
