It was my experience that teachers and other faculty were caring individuals whos focus was of the betterment of students who strived to better themselves however it was also my experience that teachers lacked the equality of students as a whole and those students involved in athletics were favored towards as sports seemed to be more important as a whole rather than education and disipline.
Diversity was at a moderate level also and again it was my belief along with most other students that the level of diversity applied to the individual student , their economic level and whether or not they were involved in athletics.
Although my staments here may have seemed somewhat derogatory , Centralia High School was a milestone in my life that I will never forget and am proud to have had the privilege of attending there.
A special thank you to the teachers and other staff and my fellow classmates.

The teachers at this school are very good with their teaching styles and knowledge. The environment in the classrooms are friendly and warm but still focused on learning. Any questions students have can be answered by the teachers and they help the students understand the subject they had questions about. Many of the teachers have great communication with the students and can communicate about pretty much anything.
Great teachers but very biased. Some of the faculty tended to favor students more involved in athletics or farming. They do have a very good athletics programs though. Food is awful.
