The experience at Centralia High School was great with the support from my English teacher and Counselors. However, the experience could've always been better and there's always room for improvement. With the school being rebuilt I believe the experience for the upcoming students will be much better. Improvement which was much needed is in effect now and it should allow the students to succeed with much more ease.

The teacher here rarely care about how you're doing mentally, physically, or academically. The only thing that really matters here is the basketball and football players. The teachers are rude and basically useless. The rules and regulations are so strict it's basically impossible to have a fun high school experience. The school is not about the students and how they're all doing, it's about the sports and administration.
This school is somewhat better than its middle school equivalent, but not by much. Although there are some stellar staff members that are diverse, there are others who are incompetent at best. The food is absolutely awful, and drugs and alcohol are prevalent. Vaping is commonplace, and I have witnessed students vaping while the teacher is busy elsewhere. The students are volatile and fights are common.
