Central is a nice school with great spirit. The large student body and various classes creates opportunities to make friends, become involved, and explore your interests. The large campus provides you with more freedom and the mixed classes allow you to easily make friends with people older, younger, or different than you. The school has many dedicated teachers, however, it would be nice to see a the changes in the curriculum of certain classes. Many classes are tied to follow state curriculum that falls short of the needs of the students. I belive it would also be beneficial if students had more access to college preparation help/information.

Schools are a lot like fashion, in that, what may seem great one day may be less greats the next. For a person to keep up with fashion, they need to keep up with current trends and be able to change up their style in an instant. In the same way, a school (teachers and administration) needs to be able to change at any time. What I loved most about Central High School is that everyone, from the students to the teachers and administration, were all able to change at any time to make everyone's experience more safe and more fun. Although there has been some things at school that I personally don't enjoy (some teachers and small groups) simply the fact that others were willing to do their best to make not pleasurable situation turn into memorable times means so much. Central High School's ability to change and try new things and work to make the high school experience more pleasurable are what I loved most about Central High School.
It's a great school, its very big and gives you the feel of a college campus. The principal is great and stays very involved with his students. The teachers are very sweet and are great teachers overall. I look forward to going to school every day, most high school students can't say that, but I can!
