At first Central High School was rather overwhelming. As the years followed overwhelming turned to tolerable, now as my time with Central High School is drawing near the end I have come to love our little school. I believe there are many benefits to being in a small school. Smaller classes with more ability for 1 on 1 attention. Where the smaller school also poses a problem with fewer extracurricular activities offered. Also less variety for classes offered.

I like how involved the teachers and administration are with the students. They want to make sure that we succeed in life after high school.
At Bolivar central high school we are surround by police officers and have to wear IDs around our neck in order for them to see if we fit the description on our IDs. The teachers are awsome, but some of the students run them over ruining the learning process for others, causing most of the best teachers to leave.The principal is the best principal any school could have but most students take advantage of the man for his kind-hearted nature. Mostly it the students that always getting into trouble who do all of this and I am tired of it.
