Central High School Reviews

When I finally entered high school at Central in the fall semester of the 2015-16 school year, I was greeted with more opportunities such as being picked for National Honor Society, joining a STEM program, and Winning the 2nd place prize in a local poetry competition. The following year I resumed my position as Historian in Central's chapter of NHS, I was chosen for an interview about one of Central's many STEM programs on the morning segment of our local news channel, Good Day Tulsa, and even started my own in-school business of selling drinks and snacks to my fellow classmates (an operation that was later discontinued due to funding issues). This year I am still in NHS, I've re-joined the Student Council team and I have recently been selected to be a part of the cabinet of the superintendent of Tulsa Public schools, Dr. Deborah Gist. So, I'd say that Central High School has done well to benefit my high school career and the rest of my academic future.

My experience at Central High School was very cool. I liked the administrators and faculty they helped students with guidance and passing levels of academics. The best thing that I liked about Central was the school pride. Even though our school wasn't independent or stable enough to celebrate within money wise we always had a strong love for each other. Our growth within the years were really prosperous and joyful. The one thing that I would change about Central High School is the lack of cafeteria food. Our cafeteria food was very unpleasant. Sometimes we would only have one chicken leg for lunch and some vegetables and the food would be cold. I would plan a on-campus food truck where the students would eat on campus but, get served food with a delightful taste.
Tulsa Central High School is the Best Arts School in Tulsa, Ok. Arts of Dance, Music, Arts, and fashion Design. The Central High will get you ready to Entertain and to the best in my Society. Not only is Tulsa Central the best School we are a family of Braves.
