-At first, I didn't like Central, but now I would most definitely recommend it. It's very culturally diverse and vibrant, and there's always something to do. The place is brimming with endless support, lifelong friendships, and school spirit.
My experience was amazing at Central High School. I had all the resources and help that I needed for anything that I wanted or needed to pursue.
To be honest, I only chose this school for it's veterinarian magnet and certification. I didn't end up in that magnet and although I'm happy with my choice in the program I am in, I have many complaints. Central can be very exclusive. I never felt like I fit in and I didn't make a lot of friends. There is a rat and cockroach problem that no one seems to do anything about. It's also very clichy and cliche. Imagine the most cringy high school related comedy where each race, gang, or some form of group is created, that is Central everyday without the singing or revealing ending.
I love my high school and me graduating this year will be bittersweet. My freshman year, I was really nervous but I seemed to fit in right away. There are so many programs, clubs, and opportunities for everyone at Central and the school has always seemed like family.
I absolutely love central. It is like an HBCU for high schools. Being surrounded by administration that cares about us and black excellence has definitely propelled me in my steps towards my career.
Central is student need oriented and provides wonderful opportunities to excel in areas of interest. Magnets offer field specific learning and some courses include certification or college credit. Classes are offered at many levels to accommodate academic success for students. Extra curricular activities range from sports and debate teams to arts and wellness. There is a large variety of activities and clubs that do well to ensure scheduling does not conflict. Administration is very reachable and attentive to the voice of parents, teachers and students. However I would like to see more funding for the courses and activities that do so much for Central yellow jacket families and the community.
i liked central a-lot. it helped me overcome obstacles i never knew i could overcome. the staff and the students were very outgoing and helpful.
I liked the magnet career options. I’ve had a very good experience there. Everyone is friendly and it is a great school.
I have attended Central High School since graduating from middle school thus I have the experience to be able to write down a review for this school. Teachers in Central tend to be very understanding and, forgiving of students because they understand the economic and psychological toll the pandemic has created. The school is average when it comes to cleanliness because lots of areas of the school are very clean. For example, some of the stairs are very clean while others are less so. By far, the most important and the least predictable factor in rating a school are the students that attend them. My experience with students in Central is average. Some students' behavior tended to be very rude to teachers trying to help them while other students tended to be good towards teachers and other students. Diversity is very poor in Central because the majority of the students attending are from one ethnicity.
I had a good time at central. It's pretty diverse and the opportunities you can get from going are so helpful. I love being able to go into whatever magnet that is associated with my career, and having the opportunity to get certificates and real life experience. I Wish the Montessori program was better and some of the teachers could use better teaching methods. Overall its fun, but you will have high expectations you'll have to meet, or you'll be removed.
I like that it is a historically black college and there are a lot of events and clubs that include everyone. There are so many good teachers and administrators but I feel like there could be more improvement on the magnets at the school. I was in the nursing program for 4 years and I felt like I didn't get much out of it.
Central high school is a great school. The teachers are amazing, they take their time to talk to their students and connect with them and care for them. The school's STEM team is really good and smart.
Central High School is my second home. I felt very comfortable, productive, and I've learned a lot throughout the time I spend there. The domain factor of Central is magnets; currently, we have more than 10 Magnet. I am a Pre-Med Magnet student, and I'm in love with the programs, teachers, and our HOSA clubs, etc. I'm glad that I have the opportunity to experience in the class, as well as all the volunteer and community service; that my teacher provided to us. Not only my magnet, but also all the teachers I know are super kind and helpful, but the most precise time is when they would always repeating until we understand; or asking if we are okay. Besides, they would never leave anyone behind, reminds us, and make sure we are on a good pace in everything. I am also lucky to join the Montessori program; it is a great place to learn and share about yourself and others, including both education and life experience. Thank you for helping me grow up in almost four years of high school!
I like the school spirit and the motivation that most students have to succeed but I would like to see better science teachers.
Coming to Central was no mistake. There are changes I would like to see within this school. Such as, more chances for students to express their concerns, more help for graduating seniors as far as college. The people there are surely like one big family. Most teachers want to see you succeed.
I like that Central has many magnets to choose from and it has a lot of clubs that many schools don’t have. Also some of the magnets do more activities compared to other schools, if they have that magnet.
My school isn't like any other school. The love that is shown there is so genuine and you can tell the administrators aren't just there for the money. Also, our school spirit is better than no others , everyone who attends that school takes pride in it and there's no doubt in that !
