I love Centreville High school, and I do not regret attending it at all, but there are a few issues that I feel should be addressed. Some of the teachers are known throughout the school for their excellence, while many of them are just as tired as the students and are unenthusiastic. Many teachers truly do love their jobs and their students, and promote a better school!

We also just got school laptops, which is very useful since some of the students that attend the school are struggling financially.

There are a few other problems, like vaping and juuling but I assume that's a problem everywhere.

I do genuinely love this school. Many of the teachers there are wonderful and terrific people who have encouraged me to grow as a person and learn new things just for the sake of exploration!

Throughout almost four years here at Centreville High School, I have noticed how diverse this school is. Many different and unique people attend this place which makes it easy to meet new people and make friends. Overall the teachers and students at this school make this place much more entertaining. I believe that this school will grow and become better in many different ways. My favorite thing about this school is that we have so much spirit, and everyone treats you with kindness!
Centreville High School is arguably one of the best schools in Northern Virginia, I feel as if although the curriculum could be a bit more challenging in certain areas, it still challenges the students and allows them to grow and develop important skills. Everything else about the school, whether its sports, clubs, or activities, prepares a student to become a more involved member of their community. What I would like to see changed is to hopefully add more mandatory extracurricular activities for the students, in order to jump-start their interest in participating in out-of-school activities.
