Definitely a solid public school option for the region. There are not enough opportunities to support advanced students, though. There is high teacher turnover, especially in the math/science/English departments. Most teachers are very caring. Average to good athletics, lots of extracurriculars available.
The teachers and staff are genuine, care about the students and each other, and are transparent. They related to the students on a scholarly level as well as on a personal level. The 4 years I have spent there have been the best of my life so far.
My 4 years was very good. I cheered all 4 years and without cheer school would’ve been very boring. My classmates are all good supporters! We support one another when it comes to make the best decisions! I wouldn’t change anything about my high school.
Cape Central is a really diverse school. You can meet all kinds of people there and it's a really great experience to have in a smart city. The teachers there love teaching; if you have a question they will try their best to answer it. The atmosphere of the school is extremely positive and nice. If you get lost in the hallways on your first day, ask anyone and they will gladly help you.
The unique thing about Central High School is that the administrators allow everyone to express there selves. Everyone is treated equally and fairly. They provide the top education and offer many different classes to take. There're many clubs and programs that you can participate in.
Central High School is a public school in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. Being a public school in a decent sized city, there is a large amount of diversity. I enjoy the variations in cultures, sexual orientations, and religions. Students at CHS have formed clubs regarding topics like gay-straight alliance and women empowerment. The overall student involvement at CHS has grown, allowing more opportunities to meet students you may never have talked to otherwise. Teachers strive to help student's not only with academics but with personal goals and as well. They are all highly educated in their fields and care about the student's futures. Staff members like the lunch ladies janitors, counselors, and school officers succeed in keeping the school clean, fed, prepared, and safe. All administrators and staff at CHS create an accepting, challenging, and beneficial environment. I have no complaints about my overall high school experience-except for the lack of flavor in our lunches and homework.
Cape Central High School is great school. At Cape Central it is very diverse, lots of clubs, sports, and even job oppurunties. At Cape Central you are given free lunch, the choice of taking college credit classes, and no uniform. Cape Central gives you the freedom to express yourself through your clothes, art shows, theatre, in choir, and through sports. The staff are all very friendly and helpful to all students. The staff also does their best to help you understand the subjects you struggle and take the extra step and preparing us for our future. For example there are ACT Prep classes that you're allowed to take as an elective class. The sophomore class is required to take the practice ACT, so they recieve practice.
Cape Central High School was a great experience and helped me a lot with getting me prepared for college. Almost any activity you could think of we have. If I could change one thing though I would change advisory back to the way it was. The new way doesn't allow you to get the help you need unless you are failing the class. Also even if you are failing say math you might get put with a Social Studies teacher to help you with Math. That just doesn't make any sense.
At Central High School, students are able to partake in an array of extracurriculars. There is a variety of clubs, sports, and other activities that any student could become involved in. Teachers and students are able to form strong bonds, and there is a good learning environment. The counselors and administration work hard and get a lot done for this school. The most pressing issue at Cape Central, however, is that the teachers are not treated well enough, so over the four years I've been here, I've seen a large amount of the staff leave and be replaced by fresh out of college teachers.
Cape Central has shown me what working and studying in a diverse community is like. Everyone is different in their own ways like socioeconomic statuses, academic inclines and ethnics. It is very beneficial to attend a school that accepts absolutely everyone. We have no criteria to attend Cape Central. There are also many great opportunities like dozens of clubs, sports, and activities to participate in.
My experience in high school has been honestly great. I've been apart of the year book staff for three out of my four years here. I've been apart of the track and field team since I've been here as well. My school is very diverse, i love that because I get a chance to meet all kinds of people from different places. At Central High School My teachers give me the encouragement/confidence to do anything I put my mind to. The students here are great as well, I've never had an issue. One thing I wish I could change about my school is our dress code. Although, over the years it's slowly fading but I just feel like every student should be able to dress as freely as they want to, unless skin or inappropriate areas are being shown. Every student is unique, so we should be able to dress uniquely without consequences.
There are truly caring people and staff. The level of education is remarkable. Most classes are difficult.
I've been in the same school district my whole life, and I guess it's okay. The teachers are usually helpful, but a lot of the homework is ridiculous. They expect us to do 50 pages in one night, as if we don't have after school activities, a social life, a job, and the need to sleep. I've seen kids pass out because of the stress.
There were a lot of teachers who helped with anything that was needed, but a lot of the counselors pushed for only local universities.
I loved the environment and the teachers are amazing. Many of them get to know you on a personal level and keep in contact with you even after you leave the school.
I love cape central it has a great administrative staff they also stay late to help you with homework or projects they have great lunches and I am proud to say I go to cape central it is the best school ever and does not have any bad thing about it. They have awesome lunch ladies and lots of academics and sports I love the volleyball team and basketball. If you have trouble deciding what school to go to choose cape central high school.
Central High School provides a diverse and inclusive learning environment. The teachers do their jobs to the best of their abilities, and are always ready to answer questions students may have.
