I think that this is a good school because it has a policy that keeps student´s grades up. There is not overwhelming amounts of homework given out because the teachers take that in consideration. Something I dislike about this school is that it does not have a soccer team. Our school is large enough for one, even though they claim we are not, yet we will not get one. The major reason is that our school board is afraid it will weaken our football team. They don´t consider that they are not offering the best for the students but the best for the schools reputation.

My school has the best fieldhouse in the entire area including the local college. I am not just saying this because it is my school, it can be proven. My school teams are very good. Our football team was ranked 4th in state and won the District Championship as well as Conference. Our softball team was also successfull. They won both Conference and Districts as well. Our volleyball team were conference champions as well. Our boys basketball team came in 2nd in both the Potosi Tournament and teh Conference Tournament. Our girls basketball team have an amazing record. They have only lost one game. They are Potosi Tournament, Christmas Tournament and Conference Tournament Champions. The wrestling team has been more successful than ever. We had 9 out of 13 wrestlers qualify for the State Championship.
If I could do it all over again, I would still attend Central High School. Out of all of the public schools in the area, CHS is definitely the best choice for a better education.
