What I loved about Central High School, was that it continuously made great efforts to be inclusive of all students, regardless of color, sexual orientation, gender affiliation, political belief, etc. I never witnessed nor experienced any sort of discrimination, and when the school was made aware of such incident happening, they took proper measures to discipline discriminatory behavior, never just looking the other way.
What I would like for Central to improve on, however, is promoting school spirit. We had very few pep rallys, which rarely attracted students because they were the same each time. The school made little effort to advertise many events happening, including sporting events, choir concerts, art shows, theatre shows, etc. If Central focused more on encouraging students to participate and attend school events, everyone, including me, would have had a greater experience.

I've attended Central for the last 4 years, and it's been quite a ride. I've had my experience with all the good and bad teachers. School at Central was a roller coaster. But what made it nice was the amount of friendly staff and students there. I would say that Central has a good academic sources. The only con is the unfair rank and GPA due to majority of the top students cheating. Multiple reports have been made to administration and teachers, but no efforts have been done to stop or punish them because they are the "good" students. In addition, there are few teachers that are terrible at there job and multiple complaints have been sent, but no consequences or corrections were made. But underneath all the grime of Central, there are a wide range of factors that make Central a school you want to attend, such as amazing programs, clubs, school spirit, resources, and people you can depend on to make your high school year great.
I'm proud to say I love my school. The teachers truly try to give their undivided attention to students and make sure us students succeed. Being in student council and Leadership, I've got to deep dive into the amount of effort the students and school staff have put into the decorations, dress-up days, and fun privileges they give to students throughout the school year. With each day, Students stop counting the days and start making each day count. Throughout the school year, each football game was like going to the Superbowl, each dance was like the biggest dance party you could enjoy with your closes friends, and every day was better than the next.
