Good academics, great students, and overall excellent experience. I attended this high for all four years and I had a really good time going there.
Central high school has been amazing. Yes teachers are exceptional and always encourage the students to do their best. I have participated in many activities throughout high school years there. I come from a family of Bobcats. My parents met at Central, my older brother graduated from Central, and I will be the last member of my family to graduate from Central.
Central High School is a great school! The teachers and staffs that handle the school and support the students are amazing. The school always encourage the students to their full potential. My freshman year was an amazing start. I was nervous, but it turn out to be the best year of my high school life. The students are very diverse and supporting. The spirit of the student council is bright and Fridays are fun.
Although Central High School does have its ups and downs it is a very good school to learn from. At least for me i had a great experience with my classes and including clubs as well we have a lot to choose from. There is a variety of choices from sports to extracurriculars that show how much diversity and culture we have there. i would say the only downsides are based on peoples experience what made mine better was friends and the helpful staff and teachers on campus. So i would recommend going to this school if it is on your list of choices in mind.
I like Central more than other schools in this district because I feel that we are most diverse. Being around different cultures, religions, languages, etc. and learning about them as a young adult is very interesting. I think it is important to be around diversity so you are aware that there are different kinds of people everywhere. I am currently enrolled in the Magnet Program, which requires some AP classes, and I am glad I've the opportunity to challenge myself academically. In the Magnet Program you are required to take a foreign language which is another thing I'm glad I got to experience. At Central you can also take trips abroad, travelling to places such as Japan and Costa Rica. I personally have not travelled but I've heard great things from those that have. I have also had the opportunity to participate in sports; I have been on our girls' varsity volleyball team for 4 years. Overall I would like to see Central encourage more community involvement.
I really enjoyed school events to engage in student participation. The school was very nice and the teachers were very friendly and helpful to me. Even though my interest in school was not fully there, I had advisors and teachers pushing me to continue my education. I had mentors there to assist me in any help I had.
Most of my high school experience isn't memorable, but there have been some really good times. I gained friends and confidence freshman year, only to lose it all sophomore year. I created a close knit group junior year, but ended up losing contact senior year. I stayed with a few people that I call my friends, and one of them is my best friend, but like all high school relationships, I know it won't last. Central's spirit used to be there, but just like any flame it slowly burnt out as the years went by. Many would participate in spirit weeks and assemblies. There would be loud cheers, and praise, but slowly it got quiet and the only time there would be cheers is either from the cheerleaders themselves, or if the dance team and the activities were interesting enough. I learned more about my personal and academic self. I didn't think I was actually going to change in high school, but I do, and for the better too.
Central High School is your average school at best in central Phoenix. The education standpoint isn't as well as it could be and it definitely could use some improvement especially in the normal classes. Expectations at Central aren't set high for students but the supportive teachers and mentors available to you at this school is unlike any other resources I've received at any of my past schools.
What i liked about central was the cross country, soccer, and track team. What i would change is some of the loose rules. O would try to make it more strict, so that students are ditching school for 20 or more days and not getting punished. I think that the school could focus on making it an art school because there is no school i the area doing that.
Central is a pretty good high school because it is diverse and respect everyone’s culture. I can say I love being at central because teacher and students are all supportive and also, me as a student, I get everything that can make me be ready for college. There is so many sports and clubs which makes it more interesting. Being at Central is really fun because students get so many opportunities. The only thing that I think central should change is food. Food is not so good. And also counselors should provide more information and sources of where students can get scholarships or do some community service.
Its an environment that would introduce any student to a wide variety of cultures and heritages. Central also provides all the experiences you would find a typical high school, but it is also an open-minded student body that finds racism, bigotry, and all other subjective behaviors cruel and unfitting of a high school environment. Central will also provide you with all the facilities and resources you need to be successful in high school which includes free lunch, computer labs, an extra study hall class period, and constant help and support. Central is also an easily accessible school as the light rail runs right up alongside it, and overall Central High School is a great high school experience.
My experience is wonderful. They have done many upgrades to the school, this made the school a much better place.
I attended Central High school 2014-2018. Coming from Goodyear Arizona it was a big change. I had no friends at first but automatically fell in love with the school and what it brought me. Central offers so much diversity and culture on their campus and completely embraces it in every aspect. The only place I feel it lacks is in college readiness. I had a hard time feeling encouraged and really hard time getting the resources I needed to move forward. Other then that I completely recommend CHS for students in the phoenix area.
At Central I met some of the best people to enter my life. From faculty to foreign exchange students to my peers, Central has put me into contact with numerous individuals from different backgrounds. In addition to diversity, Central's academics are not too bad either and there are a multitude of resources for students.
Central High School had it's pros and cons, just as any other school does. Some of the best things to be found on campus are helpful teachers and a diverse population of students where everyone is able to feel welcome. In advanced placement classes, teachers exceed at offering the students a multitude of resources to succeed both inside and outside of the classroom. Looking at some of the things that could use some improvement, it is evident that the food isnt the best in the world. Along with this, for my senior year, the cafeteria was under construction. Everyone was told that by our spring break, it would be finished, but knowing the typical speed of the school, most knew that this was a lie, and the reality consisted of the cafeteria nearing completion towards the very end of the school year. Overall, meh..?
Central High was beyond amazing. Not only were all my teachers supportive and caring, but the Global Studies Magnet Program is what truly made my experience all the greatest. Thanks to that amazing program, I got to travel to Japan, Costa Rica and France! it was an experience I'll always cherish and never forget. There' so much diversity there and so many opportunities for students to learn about other cultures whether it's on campus or hands on in another country.
What I like about Central High School is how it is diverse. You get to meet a variety of ethicity. I also like the assembly that are planned.
