Central High School Reviews
My extracurricular activities helped me learn and grown so much in ways that I thought were not possible. I was in all the leadership organizations my high school had, Student Council, National Honor Society and Business Professionals of America. I soared and loved every minute of it. I had to commitment to volunteer work and growing communication skills is the business world. I had to really apply myself if I wanted to excel in these organizations. Our trips, I had to fund raise to participate because these organizations did not receive funding. If a student is looking for something to do or learn a skill, Kirtland Central High School has it. The student just has to apply themselves and really enjoy it. That was my high school's main problem, the students were to lazy to apply themselves and did not have the support from home to enroll in any clubs. It was such a shame!
I attended all four years at central high school and it’s been a very good experience. Not only with my education but with how welcoming the school is. At central high I feel very safe and I feel like I can be open not only with certain teachers but with multiple teachers. The office staff is wonderful, they are always making sure we are safe and that we are getting the best education a high school student will need in the future to carry on in their life. I also like how they treat us like adults, because if they didn’t we wouldn’t be ready for the real world later one when we leave high school. Central high school has is a positive school all around.
The high school is fairly average , a bit smaller than most with only 200 to 150 students per class. The experiences here are decent, it is also fairly safe. Its a small school so not much bullying happens and when there is bullying it is handled very well by the staff.
