I don't think our work is as challenging as most other schools. I feel like my peers who attend other schools are ahead of me. One reasons is because our school does not offer many course options. My friends take classes such as Coding, and several others that are not offered at BCHS. And I feel our classes do not always teach appropriate curriculum that benefits the student. I took 3 years of Computers and learned very little that was useful; the last year we learned nothing about Computers but about business types, marketing, etc. The teacher did not know what he was suppose to be teaching. We have several classes that are taught by teachers who are not qualified in that subject at all. We have a music class that we do nothing in. Everyone just hangs out and no work is required. I thought I would learn something about reading music notes, etc. There are many good teachers there also. They definitely do not have us college ready. They also don't offer hardly any clubs.
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'm now a senior at Central High School and my experience there was great. Central may not be at the top of everyone's list to go to but you'll learn and have fun the same way as from ant other school.
