I was always good as school and always got great grades, but this school made me feel less than a good student. I graduated with a 3.86 GPA but they still tried to fail me 2 weeks before my graduation. The only reason is would give this school three stars is because of the wonderful administrative lady that treated me so well everytime I was a little late rushing from a shelter I was staying in more than 3 miles away. The wonderful English freshmen teachers Mrs. Batizy and another one who's name I can not recall at the moment. A hispanic U.S. History teacher who made you feel like you were a part of history. The teachers are what made my happiness in school possible. That is what I loved at my school.

Central City is an amazing school. The environment is so positive and because it is such a small school makes it very comforting knowing that teachers know you by name as you pass the halls. Don't get me wrong during passing period it becomes a bit crowded but that is totally fine. It may be a small school but many amazing students have gone through those halls and accomplished so much in a small amount of time. Their sports program is amazing and the coaches they hire know exactly what they are doing. They are able to provide athletes an amazing high school experience and able to provide them a life long memories. The classes are amazing and the teacher are able to have a personal relationship with the students and be able to connect with their students on a different level.
I liked that there are teachers who strongly believe that every individual can strive to their fullest potential whether it’s in school or work. On the other hand, a change I would like to see are the food served during school breaks , the food are not delicious and some are stuck to either just drink milk or fruit. This is a concern since most of the food get thrown away and it’s a waste of food that many people around the world aren’t capable of getting any resources like food.
