I loved the atmosphere at Center High School! The administration are truly invested in your future. Even though it is in a small town, there is an unending supply to the resources available to its students.

As with all schools, I have had my ups and downs with high school. Although there is the typical teen drama, this school has given me many opportunities that I would not have elsewhere. I have been given the chance to be in many different extracurricular activities that have made me who I am today. Not only that, but the staff is willing to work around your schedules and make plans to help you with your future education. The principals, teachers, and counselors make sure that every student has what they need to be successful in life. They are always willing to help the students in every way possible. I can be sure that I am prepared for my future because of the help that has been given to me along the way. I am so very grateful for everything this school has given me.
My experience at Center High School so far has been great. The teachers here are amazing and full of joy. The teachers always make it their priority to make sure students understand what is going on. My classmates here are great; they are all kind and willing to help. There are also several opportunities here that other schools don't provide. Overall, Center High School is great place to learn and simply have fun.
