My personal experience has been quite unpleasant. Poor communication between administration and the rest of the school, leading to disasters. Teachers often left unaware of constant last minute schedule changes, students' voices not heard by admin, guidance counselors and teachers always overwhelmed by amount of work due to admin's poor communication skills. No proper or fair disciplinary action taken at the school. Allows rambunctious kids to continue trashing the place (they're understaffed on custodians so it stays in a biohazardous state) and disrespecting adults while decent students end up in ISS or even OSS. The school is completely unprotected. Special needs children are often treated poorly, their caretakers often having no credentials. The food literally makes students sick. There are so many more issues I didn't even mention. The place is a dumpster fire, but the teachers are often pretty great and some of the clubs are quite redeeming. I'll give them that. Go Bears!!!

Central to me was a platform to get through to the nearby community college to take Dual Enrollment classes while in high school to better my education. Without those classes and a couple other Advanced Placement classes I would not have been nearly as ready for college as I was. The sports are terrible, there is no funding for anything other than football, men's basketball, and mostly ROTC. I played women's soccer and we did not get nearly as many luxuries as did most other teams. Unfortunately, the administration did not see fit that I could have a signing day ceremony at the school when I received a scholarship to play college soccer. I feel as if there are many things that the school can do to improve the school spirit.
So far Central High School is a blast! It has been fun, the teacher are help full along with guidance and office members. I dislike the students, rude and disrespectful. I like to see more respectful students with school spirit.
