Central High School provides a decent overall education for students looking to further there studies. I have found the staff to be a generous and helpful group of people that wish nothing more but for their students to be successful. The education and classes their have helped me learn and achieve academic success. With the help of Central and its staff I have been accepted into my number one college choice. Central is a decent school and is accomplished.
It is a very tiny school and most teachers helped their students one on one. Most of the teachers generally helped the students that were struggling with academics. However, after graduating and going to a 4 year university, it made me realize how poorly they prepared me for the real world. I'm not the only one who feels this way either unfortunately. In fact, all of my peers agreed with me who also went to college directly after graduating. And this is the unfortunate fact of why I'm only giving this review 2 stars.
I like my experience at Central. It's such a small town that you know your teachers before you ever get them as a teacher. We are all very close and tight knit around here.
High school here wasn't bad, just had a few problems, such as some of the teachers not caring about certain students because they weren't athletes. And most teachers just talk about athletics all day and not teach. Other than that, it's not a terrible school.
I like how we all come together as one when we have events or if sudden loss happens within the school. That is how we came up with our schools phrase "Nothing Larger Than The Heart of a Charger" after a student loss his life in a tragic accident. He originally quoted that phrase and it became very popular, and the administrators decided to use it in remembrance of the student.
I like how small the community is. We really get to know each other on a personal level. The teachers help most people when they seem to be struggling. Although, some of the faculty mostly cares about sports rather than your education. If you are not into sports, then you are seem to be less special than the others. Also, the bathrooms are disgusting and the food is terrible.
People are nice. Most teachers are easy to get a long with. Does not prep you in any way for college. You have to ask lots of questions to find out what is needed to do.
Very rude students, lots of drama and snobby people. Food is gross and most teachers can barely teach.
The extracurricular activities at this school were not very broad. This was due to the lack of teacher involvement. Not many teachers were interested in starting clubs and organizations for the students.
The teachers at this school did not go above and beyond, however they did teach the materials required. Some teachers did not seem to care about helping students that were struggling. Not many of them reached out to those who needed extra help.
Central is a school that lacks the knowledge to prepare students for college. I wouldn't choose this school if I had to do it over again. I want attend a school that will help students with their future goals. Teachers don't assign homework so the students will have an understanding of what is required to learn subject matters.
The teachers at Central is doing their job, but I often wonder if they could do better. Today, teachers teach according to the SOL standards, but don't have time to teach all of the basic that is need to be productive in society. The amount of material to cover in the classroom during a certain period is more than the students can actually comprehend.
Recently the school had some changes and the administration is picking out certain students to discipline instead of the ones who actually need it.
I feel as if the cafeteria could provide many more options, as well as more variety in the different types of foods for differing students. There was good variety in the types of lunches served per week, but barely any options for snacks or healthy choices. Often times, cafeteria workers would not allow students to buy extra entrees if they were still hungry. The quality of the food was good on most days, but some days it was evident that it was simply re-cooked from previous days. Overall, the lunch was normally satisfactory and fulfilling.
Teachers provide a beneficial curriculum!
There is often no new promotion or motivation to join new clubs.
