Central High School is an average high school. There are many cliques within the school, and most of the students are kind. The teachers can be more like best friends if you allow them to be. There’s many opportunities for the students there, as well as STEM and college courses.
Central High School can use a lot of improvement, but much of what needs improved starts at the district level or even higher. There are a select number of teachers who are actually there for the student's success, and some there only to coach. There are students attempting to make a change, but in all reality, the whole school system needs to be remodeled with the focus more on learning than passing a test. There are programs in place to help several different students, yet students are rarely informed.
In my time at Central High School, I had the opportunity to participate in a variety of different areas of interest within the school. The many different programs and sports that were available allowed for people of all different interests get together and bond. Overall the staff there was genuine and caring when it came to teaching, feedback, and helping you get through your years there. Overall it was a pretty good experience filled with good people.
My experience at Central High School has been very fun and full of adventure. Some of the things that make Central stand out is the amazing STEM opportunities available through the STEM program at the school. Some of the things that aren't Ideal about the school would be how underfunded the actually building is. It has become dilapidated from years of budget cuts and lack of funding.
The school overall has a great staff. The STEM program is still in development, but coming together well. There's a lot of great opportunities as a student for success, however the overall culture in the school is to not care.
The S.T.E.M. program is great. It gives opportunities to intelligent lower income students. The teacher are really hit or miss with more hits than misses. It is in a low income area, so there is some safety issues, but it's not the least safe high school in the district.
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.
As long as you don't have a problem with stairs you will be good. Lots of stairs and multiple buildings. Good staff overall.
I liked how kind most the teachers were and how willing the teachers were to help me succeed. I didn't like how they changed the process of things every year I attended, however.
The front office people are very helpful and help to let you know where you need to go or how to get to see the person you are meeting. they are always eager to help in any way.
I liked the sense of community at Central. The teachers have been awesome to work with and so has the administration. I also play softball for the school and our program is the best in the South Western Conference. I am also an officer with our JROTC program and the leadership is very empowering for girls.
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 :)
There are a few hard working teachers who really do a good job and engage. A majority are d***s and the staff is AWFUL at planning events or really anything. Everything is as complicated as possible. Very very limited funding and resources. Unlikeable students. The entire school district is poor and central is certainly no exception.
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!
Central High school is that school everyone made fun of but feared secretly. Can't really expect much from high that has split kids with 3 other high schools
My experience at Central High School has been very well over the past 4 years. I appreciate the well rounded atmosphere and all the sporting coaches and programs i have participated in, i also enjoy the set of up classes my junior and senior year. The only things i didn't care for at Central were the way some classes were set up, like not being able to study one book for a good amount of time.
Central High School is amazing. All the teachers are nice and treat you as family. They all care for you and are truly invested in your studies. They have an amazing STEM program truthfully I love this school.
