My experience in Central Community Jr-Sr High school was pretty good. Teachers are very nice and are willing to work one-on-one with students. Students are pretty good. They are willing to take the time and study and keep their grades up.
Athletics are amazing here! Great coaches that know a thing or two to make an amazing team. Sportsmanship here isn’t the best I would say though. Many of the ‘star players’ tend to be trained more and tend to get more help than those that are new with not as much training. The ‘star players’ then to be over played also.
There does tend to be a bit of favoritism in this district also, but that happens everywhere.

It was a great community full of many different activities for whatever people are interested in. The school is very focused on allowing students to succeed, even if they are in extra circulars.
Needed a better evaluation of teachers, some were clearly just there to clock in and out, and did not care about if students actually took anything away from the class. Also needed more college courses and a more diverse elective selection.
