Centura is a great school with friendly staff and kind classmates. Classes can be a lot of fun and teachers do a great job at helping students understand concepts. Activities such as sports are great with an amazing wrestling and track coach. Centura offers the chance to build strong relationships with faculty and is easy to talk to teachers, coaches, and other staff members for help. Overall my experience at Centura high school has been wonderful and I truly believe has helped me get my life on a good track for the future. I recommend Centura as a great small town school, not very diverse, but is a great community to be a part of.

The quality of the teachers are good depending on the teacher. The teaching styles are better in some classes than others. A math teacher I had in 11th grade didn't seem to want to teach much, so the teacher gave us videos to what for instructions then we did our book assignments. The teacher would help a certain way and if we didn't understand, the teacher wouldn't explain a different way. Most of the teachers are really knowledgable with the classes they are teaching and do good with teaching. The interest in students is pretty high but the interest seems to get lower with certain teachers. For communication skills it depends on the teachers, a lot of the teachers are great at communication which is great. Grading is pretty consistent, sometimes the teachers get so much going in class that it takes them a couple days to get grades in, but overall it's good for grading consistency.
My favorite experiences with Centura Secondary School are when I took a Spanish class, art class mostly and yearbook. The superintendents positivity is what makes Centura Secondary School unique. I would choose this school again because of the positivity that the superintendent has.
