Central is a great school for students to attend. They have such a family-oriented environment. There is not a single faculty or staff member that does not care about the well being of each and every student. The education you receive is one of the best out there. They offer so many different classes just to get you prepared for your future after Central. The sports side of things is also just as good. Each sporting team has so much talent. From the younger kids, all the way up to the seniors is packed full of talent. We have a few huge rivalries which makes sports so much more enjoyable. Overall, I think Central offers so many skills to prepare students for their future careers.

Overall, I have had a wonderful experience at Central High School. I loved how many friendships I have developed over the years. I enjoy getting to play volleyball and basketball. If I could change anything, it would be to eliminate having favorites and treating people differently. The teachers and coaches sometimes make exceptions because of who people are and who their parents are. I would change it so everyone is equal.
Central High School is a great place for kids to learn and help each other grow. Since it is a smaller school, it is much easier to get teacher help and have close friends. The Clubs at Central are growing with a new club almost every other year. Since I have been in High School, I have been in numerous clubs, including our first Robotics, Fellow Christian Athletes, and Math Club. These clubs are absolutely wonderful and help make the school so great. Every teacher seems to be involved in something weather that is a Club, the Beauty Pageant, or a Sport. Being at a school like Central you are able to have a good relationship with almost everyone. The only flaw I personally have had with the school is, there is no soccer team. While sports like golf and tennis are great sports, the interest is not there. While the interest for soccer is without a doubt present, but with they lack of an opportunity. Overall I have absolutely loved Central High School and would recommend it to anyone.
