Central Falls Senior High School Reviews

During the time that I went to school here, I had great teachers and I also had terrible teachers. Being a person who was always trying to stay out of trouble, I would often find that trouble at this school was always prominent. Many school fights would break out, kid being disrespectful to teachers, even classes that did not have a teacher present where the students were alone during the entire period of class. One of the most memorable classes was the anatomy and physiology class along with the AP biology class, both of which were taught by Mr. David Upegui. He was one of the best teachers at that school. Playing school sports was very exciting, coming from a very diverse city, the liveliness of the sports events were phenomenal. So much energy from the crowd allowed us to get even more pumped before starting the game. The school lunches were at times horrible and at others decent. At least they had snacks and cookies for sale

What I like the most of Central Falls High School is the relationship between students and teachers, it is easy to communicate with them and there is always good comprehension for us. The education that we get is always the best too and the teachers do their best to help us to understand when we are having difficulty doing it. What I would like for Central Falls High school to change is the appearance of the building. In my opinion, the place where we are being educated needs to look in its best condition for us to feel that this place is our home and therefore, we feel motivated and happy to spend time inside of it.
I fell like Central Falls High school is not a bad school, people make it seem like it's bad, but it actually isn't. Most of the kids are immigrants, and they tend to focus more on working instead of doing school work, but that is not their fault, its the way they grew up. CFHS has a lot smart kids, that cares about the school. their we have to work extra hard because the school has a bad reputation, and the government does not give us enough money. I have been there since my sophomore year, and i have met people from different places in the world, that is just awesome. I am proud that I am part of this community
