It was good throughout my years here. Centreville high school has a great scene, teachers, faculty, and campus.
Lots of student resources. Recommend student evaluations of teachers. Some teachers inexperienced and impacted grade of high achieving student.
I genuinely enjoyed my time at Centreville Highschool. I found most of the staff to be extremely polite and caring, and their robotics program is wonderful. However, what I would like to see change is more attention to small clubs such as the Anime and Gaming club, as I see them often being pushed to the side for the more education or sports driven clubs
Centreville high school had a very fun sports life, you will not be disappointed with the atmosphere at football games and basketball games.
The clubs and organizations here are very vocal and prevalent. Robotics and sports are especially regarded well and are popular. The teachers here are super nice and go out of their way to help students learn sometimes. The community itself is very kind, diverse, and accepting. There are lots of peer tutoring organizations to help struggling students. The school itself is a little overcrowded, but otherwise wonderful and the layout is easy to memorize.
Many of the teachers there are amazing and they care about their students but in my experience at least 2 of my teachers every year don’t care about whether or not students are actively learning in class.
Overall the teachers and education are great. However, the environment has a competitive feel, and there isn't much support staff for mental health.
Centreville High School is a fun and friendly place to attend. Counselors, staff, and teachers do their best to get involved with the students lives and use their to help academically.
My school career was average but the students and staff made the experience much better. Spirit weeks were a good time to wind down and relax, these spirit weeks were a pre-curser to sporting events that were the highlight of the week.
I had a decent experience as a student. I was lucky to have great teachers, but I knew/heard of issues happening throughout the school. Teen pregnancies, gang affiliation, and drugs on the premises. I, personally, felt safe, but I knew of others not feeling safe or comfortable at school
Because I am a freshman I have not been able to experience going in person yet because of the global pandemic, but the school is great. The teachers are able to nicely adapt to the online setting and are very understanding that their students are real people and have their own lives! I also like how close the school's community is, although I have not exactly experienced "real" high school yet, I've gone to the school's football and basketball games ever since I've been in elementary school and felt that I was apart of Centreville Highschool's community since the first game I've gone to in fifth grade.
Unfortunately, the school had only deteriorated since my graduation in 2016. At its best moments, it promoted being social with others, had a lot of fun clubs, had an energetic orchestra/band/theater group, and the football team was very well taught. There was a lot of school spirit and energy throughout the years, and we had a very good principal who greeted us every single morning with high fives and creative handshakes. Though I had a good, trustworthy circle of friends, there was, admittedly, a drug problem that resulted in the tragic death of a young student, which definitely made the 2016 graduation ceremony a lot more solemn.
Overall it's a good school with just about anything that you could ask for. I feel as though my needs were adequately met in terms of education, academic help, counseling, school setting, and so on. The school provides a very interconnected environment for students, staff, and parents alike to get connected and involved in their communities. The courses have the right amount of rigor, and all the teachers that I had the fortune of working with, were very supportive and helped guide me whenever I was lost or encountering difficulties. The counselors are great and work to provide maximum attention and help to the needs of the students. The sports programs, clubs, events, and atmosphere created at Centreville Highschool are amazing. Overall a very good school to attend in Virginia. I feel as though the shaping of my academic career could not have been in a better place.
Classes are easy or hard depending solely on the teacher you get regardless of the course which is really annoying . I would like to have more spirit days not only during football season and winter wonderland. College readiness is poor because of the counselors but it may be because of Covid this year hasn’t allowed for counselors to be there as much for students. Kara Stamper is the best at what she does she always sends out weekly letter of scholarships or community services and college readiness. There is a good amount of clubs but they are underfunded and not publicized enough. Sports is good for football other sports aren’t as funded. Admin do there job but don’t go above and beyond. Food is average you get what you pay for ( you should have to pay for food for a place you are forced to be, but I will save that for another time lol) There is a lot of recourses in the library and if you know where to look and who to ask like a math center and writing center which is great.
Centreville High School is the average American high school that focuses very much on its sports and very little on its music/arts. The academics there are average at best when it comes to lower level classes whereas as some of the AP classes do challenge and teach the student. Teachers at Centreville are extremely hit or miss, the good ones make a class absolutely phenomenal and the bad ones make one dread entering the room (or BBCU link, which is a Fairfax County problem more than a Centreville High School one), and the average teachers generate such minuscule personal relationships with their students that it’s like listening to a television preacher.
The population is diverse compared to other schools. There are tons of options for extracurriculares, whether it’s academically related or not. Most teachers are pretty good and thorough, but if they aren’t there are tutors and peers to support you.
The teachers are really good and they genuinely care about their students. My experience at Centreville High was pretty good. I had a great group of friends, kept good relations with my teachers, and most importantly got good grades in order to get into colleges.
