Central Senior High School Reviews

What I like about Central is that, it has many academics and it supports you into graduating. Reminders are always helpful through schoology where ever student checks to be updated. What I would like to see change is not just the outside being beautiful, I would like to see the inside beautiful as well. By that I mean, showing posters to try hard, encourage the students. The teachers should help the students much as well and encourage them to do well even if they are the "bad kids." What I hope would really change is do more fun stuff, maybe upgrade the pep rallies to be more interesting. Do more group things so everyone knows eachother, bring them closer to eachother. What I have experienced so far is that, to newcomers they are so welcoming. It's a safe school, the teachers are great at what they're doing but I just expect more.
Review Central Senior High School
I love the diversity at Central and how both students and teachers strive to embrace it. As a big school there are definitely problems with conflicts, but that happens at every school. Our teachers work hard to make sure we understand the material and provide supplies themselves if our funding is cut short. You can take basic classes to graduate, lr go above and beyond by taking college level courses in school. Overall, Central is a great place for many different kinds of people to learn.
Overall, I really enjoyed my time at Central. All of the staff members and adults working there really cared about the success of each student and made the environment very safe and comfortable for learning. The student body is very diverse and does a good job in teaching students to work with everyone from all different backgrounds. I love the community that comes with going to Central and I always know there is someone I can go to whenever I am in need.
