Central High School Reviews

Central High School in Grand Junction, Colorado is known for its STEM certified campus as well as its “go-green” attitude, previously being awarded the Green Ribbon award. As a student, I enjoy working with the staff and teachers to assure my success in my future goal oriented plans. Central High School constantly improves on campus safety, school lunches, schedule system, and implementing ways for students to be directed into a greater path. Being in the student council and National Honors Society, I noticed and was a part of big events such as dances, charity works, fundraising, and community service, which would not be possible without the influence of Central High School.

My experience at Central High School was over all pretty good. I loved being in choir because the choir director there is extremely helpful, caring, and is a really good teacher and role model. I also liked the idea of having everyone join a club because I feel like it made people feel more like they belonged somewhere. There were times when I thought that some teachers didn't do as great of a job with the students as other teachers, and the school should invest in more security such as security cameras and so on. But overall, my experience with Central High School was pretty good :)
I loved going to central, it was a very good community. I would really like to see more student involvement in the arts programs though!
