While at Central I participated in all the programs I could! I was in the Theatre magnet program and learned so much! I even had opportunities to start career tracks in technology and business, so I took a few of these classes as well. I also participated in Athletics as a cheerleader all four years there. The things I learned here, I definitely have used in college, but the dual enrollement program they offer would have been exceptional and would have prepared me even more. The school has many oppolrtunities, you just have to stay on them about exposing them.

The IB program at Central High School is supported very strongly by the parents, teachers, and administration. In addition, other advanced academic programs such as AP, dual enrollment, and work based learning is offered. There is the option of French and Spanish for foreign language with native speakers. In addition, we have the highest graduation rate in the county, the lowest arrest rate in the county, and fantastic sports. Our boys and girls basketball teams are regional champions and state qualifiers regularly, our girls track team are regional and state champions, our girls cross country team are regional champions and state qualifiers annually, and our girls soccer team are usually state qualifiers. The only downside are the general education classes where the teachers aren’t as invested as with the higher level coursework.
I attend Central High School for 10th thorough 12th grade and had a different experience each year. First year was okay, a new public school since the school I attend before was a private Christian school. My first experience was average overall with everything. My junior year though maybe was my best year by far made friends, actually enjoyed going to school most days and had a better year. My senior year though was the worst, no type of college readiness that I was looking for and just didn't have a decent senior year or made good memories.
