During my 4 years at Central High School, I thought the school was very highly advanced in academics and athletics. I have enjoyed these past few years and I have enjoyed the fun opportunities we have got to partake in. For example, the lip dub video we did throughout the school and the chances to take classes from two different colleges in our area. In the upcoming years, I would like to see more classroom opportunities for students who need a little more one on one help , and more class opportunities for students who are wanting to explore different areas of studies before entering college with that major in mind. It would also be a nice change if the school could continue to get more involved with the sports teams that they offer by encouraging them and showing support for each and every sport. All in all, the school is very friendly and very high ranked in academics and athletics in our county and I’m thankful I got to attend this school.

Central High School was a well rounded education for myself and many others. They offered online programs such as Virtual Virginia, and even Dual Enrollment throughout a community college in our county. For our small school I would suggest more programs for students looking to excel with college curriculum and making sure that individuals are allowed to take needed courses for basic college courses.
I have enjoyed my time at Central, but do feel that being prepared for the next chapter in your life as an adult should matter also. Central needs to help the students prepare and be ready by helping them find scholarships that can help them. Or help them fill out applications to whatever school they want to apply to instead of them telling you which school you should apply too and which ones you shouldn't.
