My experience at this school has been a really memorable one! At my school our faculty, students, and parents are very involved. If there is any type of event ranging from academics to sports the attendance for our school is amazing. Central has one of the most spirited schools in our valley. Our school is unique because the way people look at Central is the exact opposite of who we are. We aren't this trashy school, we are a school bonded together for the love of our school. If I had to do high school all over again I would definitely go to this school. It has been more than enough for me.

Central is a excellent school for academics and college readiness, it has amazing programs including concurrent enrollment with near by colleges and STEM education, the environment is uplifting during sporting events and the teachers are supportive of the kids and there education.
The experience was fast and it was good I only attended the school for my last year as a senior and I was welcomed and wanted I got some good STS (Senior to Sophomore) classes. But as the year went on I started to Fall out because I was having family problems and started to not make it to school because I had no transportation it was kinda hard to talk to my teachers about what was happening and if i could get help. So after awhile I tried my hardest to get my work done see who can pick me up and take me to school so that I could graduate but some of my teachers didn't know why I was missing school so I started to receive a lot of bad grades but still keep trying to catch up in class but some teachers require you to be in class to pass so it was hard.
