Central Catholic High School Reviews

Coming into CCHS my freshman year, I was miserable. All I remember thinking was "I can't believe I have to spend the next 4 years here!" I was upset about leaving my friends behind and not knowing anybody at this new place. But as the years went on, I learned to love CCHS. Now that I'm almost halfway through my senior year, I'm so incredibly thankful for the time I've spent here. The atmosphere and community at Central Catholic is just amazing, we're like a family here. The teachers here are always trying to help you be the best version of yourself, they even go out of their way and use their own personal time to help you. We also have students here from all around the world! Some students come from different countries and some live close enough to the school they just walk! I believe Central Catholic has 100% prepared me for college and for the real world. I wouldn't trade the memorable 4 years I've spent here for anything.
Review Central Catholic High School
Overall, my high school experience has been great. The staff at my high school works their hardest to help the students. When the staff is motivated, the students get even more excited to participate in school involvement clubs, extracurriculars, sports, and academics. The high school does an amazing job at preparing students for college. However, there is little diversity. The majority of the high school population consists of white or Caucasian people. Central Catholic is working on getting more diversity to the school.
The staff members here at Central Catholic have taught me that the future years are in reality the future days. With all these new experiences in life I have a different variation of what I would like to do with my Central Catholic High School education. I strive to attend a well-respected university and graduate from there with my PhD in Neurophysiology; however, instead of entering the doctor field, I am now considering entering the political side of life. I could perhaps use my power as a Neurophysiologist to help create laws that help those who need it the most. I received this inspiration from my work in the Mayor’s Health Task Force Lawrence Youth Council along with my Front Desk position at the Lawrence YMCA Branch. At the end of the day, ten years from now, I wish to rest my head on my pillow knowing that I have used the opportunities giving to me to help others in a genuine way.
