Central High School Reviews

I like that in this school, with the current conditions, teachers are flexible and understanding. Much of the learning is hands-on which is the way that I like to learn. The faculty and staff are all nice and friendly and try their best for all the students to have an education and a future.
My experience at CHS is best described as perfectly typical. We have the basic core classes and the basic extracurriculars like art, music, theater, but nothing out of the ordinary. Most teachers are good, but of course it depends from class to class. Honors classes are the better learning environments, the worst class is Economics & Personal Finance, both because it's required for EVERYONE to take and because it's easy to cheat (proud to say I passed this class WITHOUT cheating), so the result is 20 students with nothing better to do than talk and goof off for 90 minutes every day. There's Juuling in the bathrooms but every school seems to have that. The library is a great place to talk or just hang out, in short it has about equal parts good and bad, even the name is typical. This school is definitely "Central". But still, high school can definitely be a lot worse, so I'm glad I got to attend Central. I don't even think the floor plan is unique, Stonewall nearby has a similar one.
I love being a student at Central High School, the staff take great care of the students,and have a high level of respect for all of us. I think every faculty member does their best to make our school a fun, educational, and safe experience. The administration is very caring, and involved in every event from musical arts, to sporting events.
My overall experience at Central High School was an exciting one! The education is taken very seriously and all the teachers and staff are focused on helping all students succeed. The environment is very friendly and inviting, which helped me personally when I moved to the area my freshman year in 2016.
It was an average high school that put all of its money towards sports. I was not an athlete for majority of high school, but I was involved in the arts where there was not a lot of support from administration. We are the only schools in Virginia without an auditorium. Our school board is too concerned with other little things, that they didn't think about the performing arts department. The administration there only really cared about the results and not how the students were actually doing.
Central is overall a great school. Most teachers are accepting and get along with all students. Even though some students cause some trouble, it gets taken care of quite well.
I felt like a full member of the community at Central and enjoy going back to vote at it's poll place
Central High School has many great programs but the admin. Is short and there are too many tasks to be handled at once. Rules are pushed but not enforced. This is a great school for a child that doesn’t need 1 on 1 help 24/7 and can thrive on independence.
Some teachers were good but some just shouldn’t be teachers at all. The cafeteria food wasn’t very good and the lunch ladies were disrespectful.
I have had the honor to be a part of a new program at Central High. The program is the Bio-med Academy. This program was something I had to apply to, I had to go through an interview and also had to have a teacher recommendation. Since I was excepted into this program I have had the opportunity to learn a lot of new things about the science field. The classes I take are very rigorous and several are dual-enrolled. I have had the opportunity to go to INOVA Hospital to watch 2 open heart surgeries among-st other learning trips. The Bio-Med Academy has really prepared me better for my next step in life which will be going to college. I am very pleased with the Academy and everything that it has helped me with in trying to choose a major. Central High School is a great school and I am very happy to have been a part of it.
I'm in my third year at Central High School, and I've had an overall good experience so far. There are a wide variety of classes offered, many helpful resources that can be found in the guidance office, and, for the most part, the environment as a whole is nice.
I love Central! They are so kind and the teachers are very well with all students. Everyone treats each other the same and there aren't many mishaps.
I would like to see more clubs, as of now there’s very few and the most basic clubs such as ffcla and FFA. I would also love to see more language taught too, such as German or Japanese.
I think administration is awful and lies and covers things up constantly for kids they have picked out as their favorites.
It is an awesome school with a lot of memories that can be made. There are a lot of courses offered.
This was a great high school. It was small, and quite easy to get good grades. I loved it here. I am glad I went to a small school and not a large one. I felt like my teachers really knew who I was.
Central High School was an average school to go to. The classes offered were sufficient and they have added even more. However, I would not recommend this school based on diversity. There is virtually none. They sort you into two categories, college prospects, and non college prospects. If you come in the latter category, they do not care much about your advising and future, and will not make an effort to help, even if you are interested in pursuing a trade. Overall, it was sufficient but could be a lot better.
