Central City Value Reviews

The best part of the value schools is that personal connection you have with teachers. Due to the small class sizes , you are able to connect more with your teacher and feel closer to them which in some cases students learn better from. Another amazing thing about the value school is the sense that teachers do care for the best your grades, they stay the extra hour to make sure they can help you if you do not understand anything. They go the extra mile. However, having caring teachers does not make the school the best, one thing I wish the school changed was the start time. Having a 7:30 start time is really early, and often students come tardy or they can't think to their fullest potential yet, not until after first period.

Central City Value High School is a great school with all the staff members and teachers they have at that school. I started my freshman year at this high school and now I'm a senior. Through the four years me personally have liked the school and had a great time. This school is small with around 400 students. The teachers really get to know you and really well. This school plans out a lot of things like dances, meetings for parents for college and more. I would really recommend this school other students so they can get a good education for the future.
Although Central City Value High School is a small school with not a strong financial support, the school itself impacts the community and its students. As a student and part of the community I have learned to love my school and its flaws. I'm an athlete and our school does not have a field yet our principal and those in charge take sports very serious. This year, the soccer lady jaguars have made history by making it to semi-finals and the entire school has been there to support us. A small community means more support and trust, to begin a new journey.
