Rating 3.48 out of 5 96 reviews
I really liked that everyone there is so welcoming and nice. The staff they have there is incredibly awesome and they all work super hard to make sure everyone feels safe and at home while we are at school.
I had a good experience at Central High School in Martinsburg, Pa. My teachers were very willing to help me when I needed. I was on the track team for 4 years and in my senior year I qualified for our state level discus throwing competition. My track coach made special arrangements for the opportunity because I was the only one from my high school that qualified. I feel I got a good education at Central.
Students are awful for the most part, although there's a few exceptions. Most of the teachers are alright with some gems. Very little diversity. Education usually takes a backseat to sports and irrelevance. Overall pretty terrible, did not enjoy my time here in the slightest.
Central is a good rural school. The academics are good as well as the teachers who teach those academics to their students. Our school has taken many steps to be a safe school. We have cameras, automatic locks on office entrances, a computer check in that must be done before entering our school if a visitor, as well as a Resource Officer among other things. The students take pride in being a "scarlet dragon" and most of the students are caring and hardworking.
I loved the ability to take classes for college credit. I disliked how strict our school was about little rules. For example, not being able to sit in your car when you arrive to school.
I personally have went to Central High School all four years of my high school career and I can say that it is quite an amazing place of education while also maintaining that fun factor everyone dreams of. All of the teachers are well rounded and get the information into your head and have it stick. Now not only that but our school has so many entertaining and fun events. Our lunches is where we lack. I mean they are edible but there is absolutely no flavor. I would rate my school a five out of five because no school can be perfect and I am glad the place where it is lacking is the lunches.
Central High School, is one many would call their home. It is located in the small town of Martinsburg, PA. It has a very small community close feel. The teachers are very helpful and willing to help you succeed. As well, since the school is so small it's very personable.
I like the small town atmosphere yet think a larger scale environment offers more in the way of culture and diversity.
I love all of my teachers at Central High School. They have prepared me for college and for my future adult life. I also have had very good experiences with my teachers they really connect with me and truly want to help me continue my education. Lastly I love marching band, our instructor is very kind and hard working. I would highly recommend anyone to take on marching band it really helps release some energy if you love music and can't play sports.
Central High School offers many opportunities for students. There are many dual-enrollment courses for college prep. students. There is also an agriculture program as well as a building trades program. Sports include football, cross country, tennis, soccer, golf, volleyball, basketball, wrestling, baseball, softball, and track.
I moved to Central this year and being it is my Senior year it was hard at first but in just a couple weeks i made more friends then i ever did the first few months at my old school. The teachers are unbelievably kind and always try to help students in every way they can. The kids here have been so kind and funny and very warm hearted towards new kids. Not to mention the sports teams here are amazing
I enjoyed everyone in the school, however sometimes I felt as if the school system had some minor set backs.
There is a ton of things to do after school, likes sports and different clubs
The teachers are extremely helpful and are always willing to help out when needed
This school is unique in the way that each parent is committed to their child's education and pushes their children to succeed. The parents would come together for band events, band and choir concerts, football games, and they would always get together before graduation of each class.
The teachers in this school teach the curriculum and nothing more. They do try hard to keep each lesson engaging by using smart boards, technology, and sometimes projects. The grading scales are very consistent. Teachers would communicate assignments and expectations to students appropriately and in an easy way to understand. Most of the teachers do not take an outside interest in the students, even those struggling.
Few to no clubs, any clubs implemented were usually closed down within a few weeks. Students find it "uncool" to join clubs.
