Central Tech was a home to me. It was a place where I always felt welcomed and loved. I enjoyed working on many projects with students and teachers. Every project was an adventure, each thought me a lesson. I wil forever cherish the memories made there throughout the four years. What I wish that would change is the way it looks. What I mean by that is it needs remodeling. It is a very old building which isn’t a pleasant view to look at. But even in those circumstances it still holds a very special place in my heart.

In Central Tech, I had a great experience through all 4 year. School is so great and teachers are just so helpful. We had A and B days class. In A day we have specific class and in B day different. we have 2 to 3 classes per day then shop class. Shop class is where we have like major. Such as nursing and bussiness. Everything about this school is great and its really helpful for colleges and your major. Things that i wanna improve is that we dont have good lunch. Cafeateria is small and food arent that good. Only thing i could improve is lunch.
Central tech was a great school because you have the opportunity to learn a trade/career that can land you a good paying job while in highschool or right after graduation. I graduated in 2016 and the only thing i would say needs improvement is getting more help especially for a student like me that takes longer to learn algebra because im not proficient in math. Majority of the teachers will try to help you if you ask for extra help and make them aware youre struggling which is a benefit.Plus when i was attending they gave you the chance to do credit recovery so you wouldnt be behind it requires effort and its time consuming but its a great opportunity to finish school on time with your class. The highschool offers great career choices. Thank you for your time, hope my review was helpful.
