Centereach High School is filled with students that are all unique from one another and there is people there who will like and accept you for who you are. The faculty and staff there are nice and polite and try their hardest to make sure their students are actually learning something and becoming good people. The school does its best to keep everybody in the building safe and provide top-notch resources for students to use. There is a huge variety of sports and clubs to join as well as music and art classes so it is difficult not to get involved! What I like most about this school is it tries its best and succeeds at standing out from other schools. This school is full of personality which makes it enjoyable to attend! Overall, this is a great school that makes me and a lot of others smile. As this summer vacation's end keeps getting closer and closer, I look forward to making the most out of my last year attending Centereach High School!

Centereach High School is an institution with an incredible amount of unrealized potential. There are a few inspiring teachers, whose efforts are immensely undervalued, but the majority of the teachers and administrators seem to be uninterested with the genuine well-being and growth of the soon to be adults they are responsible for guiding. Our education was molded to help us pass a test, as opposed to sparking our passion and curiosity. All in all, though Centereach High School has the resources to allocate towards helping their students build a future for themselves, it does not use these resources effectively, choosing indifference over compassion. If a student is not motivated to exceed expectations, it is only because they are following this example set by the very institution that exists solely to teach and inspire.
Centereach High School was a nice public school. It had some great teachers who really cared for their students and wanted to see them succeed. But, like most schools, there were some people that probably shouldn't have been teaching. There were plenty of fun activities and school-sponsored events. While I thoroughly enjoyed my experience in the music program, it was obvious the emphasis was on sports (as it is in most schools) even though we had a talented music department and subpar athletics program. I felt I was well-prepared for college, especially with all of the AP courses offered.
