My experience with Center High School was fairly great for the most part. Center High School has several career classes that can help you explore more into your career choice and/or help you begin looking into a career. You also get core classes and get to try for extra curricular.
One thing I wish I could see change with Center High School is that I wish teachers or school counselors would go more into detail about what each career class is about. I barely got to start exploring during my Junior year because I was not properly informed about the career class options I had, but I fortunately had enough time to find a career class that caught my attention.

Center High School is a good school. While academics can sometimes leave much to be desired, the school does try to help its students and give them opportunities. Students can take free college classes or dual credit with SFA or Panola and they have AP English and AP Physics. Unfortunately, CHS's main focus is on athletics rather than academics and it can be very blatant. Especially when the budget is tight and funding for "non-essentials" like Journalism is cut to make way for new football uniforms. I have heard the Life Skills program and help for students with ADHD or dyslexia is very good.
Center High School is very good for athletic students who want to be noticed by colleges and we do have a flex lunch which can allow new clubs to be created by students like a K-Pop Club, Anime Club and Naptime Club.
What I like about my High School is that I have the opportunity to get college credit from Panola Junior College and SFA. I am currently taking English Composition 2, Psychology, and Elementary Statistics through Panola and Biology through SFA. The teachers are also very supportive and willing to help and answer questions. The counselors are always willing to answer questions about college and help me choose a college best fit for me. I am glad I have had the opportunity to go to Center High School.
