Central Cabarrus High School was a great experience for me in the STEM Program. However, we did not have to resources that other schools had like good sports equipment or art supplies. I can only speak for STEM, but the teachers were great! Very helpful!

My experience with Central Cabarrus is unpleasant. Currently, I'm a senior at Central Cabarrus. When I was a freshman at Central Cabarrus, I had a different perspective of my high school. I was excited to make new friends and teachers and overall seeing the campus. As time went by the teachers and students gave me a new perspective of them. The students were always rude and unpolite to each other. In an environment where all you wanted to do is learn, it was impossible to do so. Teachers expect you to know everything. Specifical I remember having teachers who taught me to look in the book and find the answer instead of them explaining. To be stuck in a small classroom filled with students who are rude and teachers are incompetent is unpleasant. The campus wasn't just small but filled with cockroaches. That is my experience with my high school.
I used to go to this school. It was great my freshman and sophomore year, but in my junior year it started to get boring and I just found it hard to want to go to Central. They had this program called POWER. There was 40 minutes you had for lunch and 40 minutes you had to do homework, catch up on work, do activities, etc. But people started abusing POWER and it got taken away fully in my junior year. They also closed it because of overpopulation and the school was CROWDED despite it being small. The students and teachers were nice though. Teachers were always helpful and cared about your needs. There was also a bunch of different elective classes there which was sweet. I enjoyed my freshman and sophomore years and that was it. The school just kept declining to the point where I didn't want to be there much. - Jacob Nichols
