Central Mountain High School Reviews

The biggest lesson that I have learned from CMHS is how to advocate for yourself. There is a complete lack of investment in student success. The academic environment is not focused on preparing students for college, and the course offerings are limited. There is no test preparation for the ACT or SAT or meaningful guidance throughout the college process.

Being successful at this school requires an enormous parent commitment and financial investment to provide the resources that the school doesn't have. Most students have financial constraints that make their academic success nearly impossible under the given circumstances.

I've been involved with Keystone Central School District since kindergarten till grade 12. Central Mountain High School and their teachers have made a huge impact on my life. I've been provided with a education and gained trust within the school. I've overcome several goals and met expectations that have been set for me. The teachers have taught me to try my best and made me feel comfortable if I needed help throughout my education career. I feel as though a school could always do something to be improved and I think that we could focus on college readiness, parent involement and administration communication with students. With that being said I feel as though we are not prepared for the college world, I feel as though we have been isolated with that experience. Along with that our administration doesn't set things clear with the students. Its very hard to hear about our options. Lastly I am very thankful for my school and all that it has taught me.
At central mountain I like that all the teachers are always so nice and we as students have the opportunity to take ctc classes. These classes prepare you for what you are going to do in the real world. I took cosmetology in school and it was a ctc class. At the end of my high school career, I can get my cosmetology license with no cost to me. Also we could take college classes that surrounding colleges offered at our school. I took a PCN English Composition class. I now have credits that will transfer to the college I’m going to.
