Central Community High School Reviews

I have truly enjoyed my first three years at Central and I plan on enjoying my last year also. The teachers and staff care so much about every student. The teachers try and help mold each and every student to become a respectable young man or woman along with preparing them for college or any other route they decide to take. The atmosphere is amazing everyone has school sprit and participates. I participate on scholar bowl, student council, Spanish club, debate club, FBLA, and First Priority(faith based group) and I love every minute of them because the staff make them so enjoyable. All in all Central has done a great job at making it feel more like a family and less like a school.

Our school spirit is like no other! When it comes down to game time, everyone from freshman to senior, teacher or parent, is found on the sidelines cheering on our school team. Our Principal, Mr. Jones, not only supports our sports, but walks around lunch almost every day asking how classes are going and if he can find anyone the help they need. I have never felt as important or accepted in a community than when I am at school. Our teachers go above and beyond the expectations of the curriculum. They try to make things fun and get us involved in an activity for each chapter or subject. Overall, Central is a family, and like Mr. Jones says, once a cougar, always a cougar!
Central Community High School has provided me with incredible skills in order for me to succeed in college after I graduate. The environment of our public school is like no other. Our community is so involved with all of our athletic activities and fundraisers because of how much they all love and support us. All of the students all have this drive to achieve, and the teachers are always encouraging us to do our best in everything that we do. I believe that high school is a very important four years in a person's life especially when it comes to developing yourself as a person, and Central Community High School has helped me form into the person I am today.
